Walk to Work Day with Better Waste Solutions

Better Waste Solutions will be celebrating national walk-to-work day this Friday, April 5th! A walk to work day is an opportunity to mix up our daily routine and have a morning that is beneficial for not only the environment but for our health too.

As a top-quality waste management company, Better Waste Solutions places a lot of importance on strict eco-friendly practices, meaning that our company does whatever it can to cut down our ecological footprint. Not only are we compassionate about our environmental future, but we are passionate about encouraging healthy futures for our employees and customers.

Established in 2004, Walk to Work Day was an effort to boost imaginative strategies for improving health and overall life quality. It is notable each year as a message to consider the small constructive changes we can make in our daily lives that will generally have a big impact.

So, how does walking to work, for even 30 minutes affect your health?

  • The risk of heart issues reduces.
  • Walking around 2.5mph for 30 minutes burns around 100 calories.
  • Lessen your stress by giving you time away from stressful life issues and allowing you to have time in a mindful state.
  • Decreases depression and anxiety through the release of endorphins.

Walking to work, although appearing to be a small change, can do wonders. So how are we celebrating Walk to Work Day? We are encouraging, where possible, our employees to leave the car at home and walk to work. Pop your headphones on, listen to music or an audio book, and take this time to centre yourself and mentally prepare yourself for a great day.
