North Texans can come together to do something extra to reduce ozone-causing pollution, as part of the ninth annual Clean Air Action Day on June 22. With more than 20 possible clean air choices, there are several actions they can take to do their part. Here are a few of them:
- Carpool or van pool
- Use mass transit
- Bike or walk
- Avoid quick acceleration and braking
- Reduce idling
- Report polluting vehicles to #SMOKE
- Switch to energy-efficient light bulbs
- Drive less
- Encourage others to join in
Air North Texas, the regional clean air campaign, is sponsoring a social media contest in the days leading up to June 22 to encourage residents to share their clean air action. Residents simply post about their clean air actions on June 22 or earlier with the hashtag #CAAD2018 to be entered into a drawing for prizes.
