H2O on the Go!
Goals: Promote greater consumption of water and the use of healthy, sustainable forms of active transportation.
Public Bike Repair Stations
Health benefits of active transportation: Physically active people live longer, have a lower risk for heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes, depression and even some cancers. Studies have also shown that students who bike to school perform better academically and have an easier time focusing.
Innovative Water Fountains
Health benefits of water: The average American consumes 50 gallons of sugar a year, or 39 pounds of sugar alone! Drinking enough water is a healthy alternative that help control calories, keep your kidneys healthy, skin looking good, and muscles energized! You can even increase the taste and health benefit by adding fruit and/or veggies to create an array of healthy and refreshing flavored-waters (e.g., lime-mint water)!
