World Environment Day
Air pollution is the theme for World Environment Day 2019.
90% of people worldwide are exposed to higher levels of air pollutants than are considered safe by the World Health Organization. The theme invites us all to consider how we can make changes in our everyday lives to reduce the amount of air pollution produced. Here are a few ways you can help combat air pollution today:
- turn off lights and electronics not in uses
- cycle/walk to work or activities
- never burn trash
- check efficiency ratings for home heating systems and appliances
