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.
