Air pollution dirties every organ in the body. It is the biggest environmental threat to our health, no matter who you are or where you live. Air pollution can harm every organ in your body and can shorten our lives, contribute towards chronic illness and put us more at risk from COVID19.
This Clean Air Day there are simple steps we can all take to cut down on the air pollution we cause and use our voices to fight for a cleaner air future.
- Talk to someone about the harms of air pollution.
- Walk those short distance trips and leave the car at home, where you can.
- If you travel by car, consider hiring an electric car or electric taxi.
- Turn off your engine while your vehicle is stationary.
Take steps to improve your health this #CleanAirDay.
