Today is California Clean Air Day!

“Everyone has a right to breathe clean air. By raising awareness and actively working to reduce air pollution, every Californian can help ensure that every breath you take is a breath of clean air.” Dr. Joseph K. Lyou, President & CEO of the Coalition for Clean Air

Here are some suggested things small and big, to contribute to clean air in our environment:

  • Replace office heating and air conditioning filters.

  • Plant indoor plants to improve air quality.

  • Power down: make sure all computers, printers, and lights are turned off when not in use.

  • Shut off half the lights and power down when closing your business for the day.

  • Replace lights with energy-efficient bulbs.

  • Offer designated “bike parking”, including outlets to charge e-bikes to encourage active transportation.

  • Install solar panels.

  • Reduce the number of deliveries and have them arrive at non-peak times.

  • Have the maintenance crew replace gas-powered lawn mowers with electric lawn mowers.

  • Ensure contractors reduce the impact of building work by limiting the use of diesel generators and by suppressing dust.
