How Do You Prevent Air Pollution?
Only we, the residents and visitors living and breathing here in Maricopa County, can make the air healthier for all of us. There are lots of things that each of us can do to stop being part of the problem — and start becoming part of the solution. How do you prevent air pollution? A good first step is to commit to taking action in your personal life to reduce your contribution to air pollution.
I commit to:
- Drive less. When possible, walk, ride a bike, carpool, van pool or use public transportation.
- Avoid waiting in long drive-thru lines, for example, at coffee shops, fast-food restaurants or banks. Park your car and go inside.
- Re-fuel your vehicle after dark (or during cooler, evening hours).
