Emissions from motor vehicles account for almost a third of the air pollution in the United States. Many smaller but widespread sources of air pollution can be found in our homes and neighborhoods. You can take simple actions to protect and improve air quality where you live, work and play.

Actions you can take to protect air quality
  • Burn calories instead of fuel. Walk or bike to travel short distances.  Sweep the deck or porch instead of using a leaf blower.
  • Plant a tree or adopt a plant. Leaves absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, helping to clean our air.
  • Switch to electric or hand-powered lawn equipment. Gas-powered engines on lawnmowers and leaf blowers often lack pollution control devices.
  • Use less electricity. Choose energy efficient appliances and heating systems. Turn off lights and electronics you are not using. 
  • Use environmentally safe paints and cleaning products whenever possible.
