Frienduary

BetterPoints is all about making the world a better place. Last year, the average BetterPoints user in the UK saved 50kg of carbon dioxide emissions by walking, cycling and using public transport rather than driving a car. That's a huge difference.

But we want to do more. That's why we're running Frienduary, a fun campaign to spread the love and help us make the UK greener - and more people happier, healthier and wealthier!
