WHAT CAN WE DO TO KEEP THE AIR CLEAN

Clean air refreshes

We should do our part to make the air around us cleaner and healthier. We should be part of the solution and do our best not to contribute to the pollutants that are already causing so much damage in the air and in our environment. One might ask what one simple act can do to make the air clean. Well, that simple act may just be the spark we need to start a campaign to keep the air clean. It creates a ripple effect. Setting a good example for others can encourage them to do the same. When that happens, we can all help save our environment one simple act at a time.

A simple way of helping make the air cleaner is by using public transportation. You can also walk or ride a bike going to your destination. Carpooling can also be an option. It is all about reducing the number of vehicles on the road that emits harmful chemicals into the air. One less car, less emission into the air. When going to a specific destination, plan your route carefully. Make sure you take the most efficient route. Combine your errands so that you do not need to start your car’s engine all over again. The less time you are on the road, the less emission you contribute to the air. Another way to help keep our air clean is by making our homes energy-efficient. Conserve energy. Turn off the lights, heater, and other appliances when they are not in use. Use hand-powered tools and buy energy-efficient appliances. These are easy steps to help make the air around you cleaner and healthier.

At the end of the day, what matters most is that we do not add further to the pollution in the air and when everyone does this, then we might just find ourselves breathing clean and fresh air once again.
