Free rewards app encourages sustainable travel around borough
Sutton Council has launched a free rewards app to encourage residents to be more active and travel sustainably in the borough to help improve air quality.
Run in partnership with an organisation called BetterPoints, residents can download the app and track their sustainable activity and travel using a smartphone. Points are earned for walking, cycling, running, scooting or even taking the bus.
BetterPoints can be converted to vouchers to spend in local shops, restaurants or even donated to a charity.
Over the school summer holidays the app will feature a treasure hunt, encouraging families to get out and active in Sutton’s parks.
To download the app and for more information visit the BetterPoints website.
The app is the winning solution to the council's Smart Place challenge which aims to raise people's awareness of their impact on air quality and encourage them to change their behaviour. Smart Place is about finding innovative solutions, including the use of digital technology, to improve the lives of people in the borough. For more information on Smart Place click here.
