11 Things You Can Do for Cleaner Air
There are simple steps you can take in your everyday life to help improve air quality. Every time you drive to work or school, use your heater or air conditioner, clean your windows or even style your hair, you make choices that can reduce the increase of air pollution.
Here are the things we can do to help reduce air pollution and global warming.
1. Walk, run, or bike whenever you can
Leave the car in the garage and use buses and trains when possible.
2. Save electricity, save money, cut down pollution
Unplug appliances, use low-energy light bulbs, buy high-efficiency appliances, turn off computers and other electronics.
3. Get an energy audit of your home
Seal drafts, refresh insulation, and find out where else you are leaking money into the air—and using too much energy.
4. Eat less beef
Your healthier body will thank you. Industrial farms create tons of pollution.
5. Don’t burn trash
The smoke is dangerous for your lungs and creates dirty air.
6. Reset your thermostat
A couple of degrees save a surprising amount of money and cut down on oil and gas or electricity consumption.
7. Drive friendly
Speeding means more pollution from tailpipes, and more danger, too.
8. Don’t idle your engine, even for a few minutes
You are wasting gas and releasing harmful tailpipe pollution.
9. Tire pressure counts
Proper inflation means you use less gas.
10. Make your home a no-smoking zone
Indoor air polluted by cigarettes is bad for everyone’s lungs.
11. Compost food and garden material
And recycle non-organic trash.
