Five Tips for Clean Air Day


On this Clean Air Day, check out these tips to limit exposure to air pollution:

  • Check the air quality readings in your local area. Visit for your local conditions.
  • On days with poor air quality, stay indoors and keep your windows and doors closed. Reschedule outdoor activities for another day if possible.
  • Carpool or take public transit. Consider biking or walking as alternate ways to get around.
  • Do not use gas or diesel-powered lawn mowers, leaf blowers or gardening equipment as these devices create lots of air pollution.
  • Don’t burn wood or trash. Instead of burning debris, start a compost pile in your backyard for organic materials.
