Star of the Month

Be our Sustainable Star of the Month

Have you enjoyed walking, cycling and using public transport recently? Then tell us, we'd love to hear from you.

If you're still working from home, tell us about how you're keeping active by using the car less for short leisure and shopping journeys.

Every month we are awarding one user 10,000 BetterPoints for being our Sustainable Star, just for telling us how the BetterPoints app is helping them to be more active and environmentally friendly.

Congratulations to Jessica who lives near Markfield, and who is our Sustainable Star for August!

She joined the challenge in February 2021, and was using her car most days each week. Taking part in the challenge, as well as a switch to working from home has helped her to ditch the car journeys. She now starts her day by making her new 'commute' on two feet and has introduced variety to her week.

Here is what she said about participating in the rewards challenge:

"Since joining the Choose How You Move challenge - it's motivated me to swap car journeys and use the bus instead. Also I've increased my physical activity by walking as often as I can.

I've saved money by switching to public transport. It is cheaper than paying for parking and fuel. Walking boosts my mood, wakes me up and I feel energised and ready for work. This helps me to feel less stressed, and I get more exercise whilst earning BetterPoints.

We have even taken the leap and now have 2 cars instead of 3 in the family. So that's one less car on the road in Leicestershire." - Jessica
