You can help cut down on air pollution by making simple changes in your daily life: Consider alternative means of transportation, such as walking or bicycling. If you must drive your car, try to do all your errands at one time, one after the other. Keep tires properly inflated. Keep your car in good condition Keep tires properly inflated and aligned. When possible, use public transportation, walk, or ride a bike. Get regular engine tune ups and car maintenance checks (especially for the spark plugs). Report smoking vehicles to your local air agency. Don't overfill at the pump approximately half of the air pollutions comes to us by way of cars and trucks. There are two very important ways to prevent air pollution - try to drive less and be a smart driver.

Instead of letting your car idle in long drive-thru lines, park and go inside to order. If you find yourself driving only a few blocks to lunch or the corner mart for a few things, walk instead. You'll save fuel, get some exercise, and get to know your neighborhood better.

Lights out! Most of our electricity still comes from sources that generate an enormous amount of pollution, but you don't have to install a wind turbine in your backyard to help reduce it. Simply turning the lights out every time you leave a room can be a huge energy s ...more
