National Clean Air Day is taking place on 16th June 2022. Our air pollution crisis is solvable and there are simple steps we can all take to help our family’s avoid toxic air and cut down on the pollution we emit- good for us and good for the planet also!
Drive less- Leave the car at home, walk, cycle or take public transport to work or school. Use quieter streets when you’re on a bike or on foot to avoid polluted main roads. If possible work from home more often- challenge your workplace to make this easier for you.
If you can – Go electric! But if not when it is safe to do so turn off your vehicles engine when you aren’t driving.
This Clean Air Day, there are simple steps we can all take to cut down on pollution we cause and use our voices to fight for a cleaner air future. Less polluted streets and greener streets are also a important part of the solution to the climate emergency.
