Clean Air Action day set for June 22

Across the region on June 22, North Texans will do something extra to reduce ozone-causing pollution as part of the ninth annual Clean Air Action Day.

Air North Texas, the regional clean air campaign, is sponsoring a social media contest to encourage residents to share their clean air action. Residents simply post about their clean air actions on June 22 with the hashtag #CAAD2018 to be entered into a drawing for prizes.

Individuals can participate by pledging to implement at least one clean-air action that they do not normally do. Here is a list of clean-air choices you can make on June 22:

  • Carpool or vanpool.
  • Use mass transit.
  • Bike or walk.
  • Telecommute.
  • Combine trips or drive less.
  • Report smoking, polluting vehicles.
  • Avoid idling.
  • Confirm you are up to date on regular vehicle maintenance and state emissions and safety inspection.
  • Consider an electric or other alternative-fuel lawn mower.
  • Switch to compact fluorescent bulbs.
  • Pursue energy-efficient home improvement projects.
  • Use a vehicle-approved biofuel in your car.
  • Buy local or at places where less driving is required.
  • Encourage someone else to make clean-air choices on June 22.
