Join the Think, Move, Breathe! Challenge

Travelling around South Lanarkshire in a way that is good for the environment and your neighbourhood deserves more than just a pat on the back. With the BetterPoints app your green and healthy trips can earn you rewards every time you walk, wheel, run, cycle, or use public transport.

Earning BetterPoints is easy! Download the BetterPoints app from the App Store or Google Play. You can record how you choose to get around and keep track of how many points you’ve earned. You can turn your points into high street shopping vouchers or donate them to your favourite charity!

The Think, Move, Breathe! campaign is running in South Lanarkshire until May 2024. It’s about encouraging people to have fun, get active and help create a cleaner, greener South Lanarkshire by travelling in ways that benefit the environment, health and your community, as well as helping the local economy too!
