What You Can Do to Improve Air Quality

A graphic showing ways you can help to reduce air pollution: wind turbines as an example of renewable energy, driving low pollution vehicles, taking the bus or riding your bike, refuel at gas stations in the evening, compost yard waste instead of burning it, mow grass in the evening, avoid using the fireplace or wood stoves when air quality is poor, use low VOC cleaners and paints, and in general use less energy.


There are many ways we can help to improve air quality. In general, using less energy sourced from burning fossil fuels, and reducing the amount of exhaust and emissions created from vehicles or motors that burn fossil fuels, will help reduce air pollution and slow climate warming.
