Drive Your Bike to Get From Here to There
Whether it be to work, or to the store, to the library or to the park, making that trip by bike can be easier than you think. We're trying to make biking more likely to happen!

Help make the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice!
Sometimes you just need a quick reminder to take the stairs or to choose a healthier snack. re:TH!NK can help with Point of Decision Prompts (PODP). Making a better choice is as easy as reading a reminder prompt right where a choice is made. re:TH!NK's PODP Toolkit has several easy-to-post options to remind people to take the stairs, park further from the door and pick healthy fruits and veggies. There are kid-friendly prompts too suitable for a school, daycare, or the home (right next to the snack drawer).
