How it works?
Take the Stairs - Every Step Counts! campaign is free and easy to implement. We will provide your business with a variety of informative, upbeat signage along with plexiglass wall holders to post near elevators and escalators to prompt users to choose to use the stairwell.
The signs use creative messages designed to influence one’s decision about whether or not to take the stairs:
- “No waiting…One door over!"
- “Walking up stairs burns 3 times more calories than riding the elevator!"
- “No time to exercise today? Your opportunity is now!"
Plus seven other messages available in a ten-sign packet. Fifteen additional messages are available electronically for easy printing.
We also have two new ‘special edition’ signs that we can send to you for printing:
- “Eh,... Has pensado en las escaleras?”
- “Save Energy… Burn Calories” – our special Green Edition sign
More than 60 Boston businesses and organization have already pledged to Take the Stairs by posting this “point of decision" signage next to elevators and escalators.
“The Take the Stairs campaign has been a wonderful way to get exercise during the workday. The signs have been gentle reminders and have helped employees to think twice before entering the elevators, especially when the stairs are right there. Several employees have reported that since the campaign started, they only take the stairs at work. What a gentle way to exercise. Small steps do make a big difference” Jeanne E.
