Working to get standing desks into classrooms and end the epidemic of sitting
At UpStanding Kids, we're working to get standing desks into classrooms and end the epidemic of sitting. UpStanding Kids (www.upstandingkids.org) is a registered charity and not for profit run by volunteers.
We are committed to working with manufacturers like Sit Less to produce the best desk without any bias or financial interest.
We've reached a critical point in the health of our children. Kids are spending up to 85% of their day sitting down. These sedentary lifestyles are not what humans were built for, and it leads to an array of health problems which can follow children through their adult lives.
Not only is standing better for their health, it has also been shown to improve focus in the classroom. It allows the kids more freedom to fidget, something that children need to do. Children often have seemingly endless energy; we can't bundle all of it into a chair all day and expect the best results for their health or their learning.
Standing desks are a simple and effective solution to a big problem. Help us in our mission at UpStanding Kids. Take a stand in the cause to help our children be more engaged at school, have better health, and be more active and happy.
