Reminder: Wednesday is Clean Air Day, a statewide action to support healthy air and a healthy climate.
Clean, safe, healthy air is a right. No one should have to live, work or play in air that is unhealthy to breathe. We need to continue to fight climate change, one of our most serious global threats, with impacts to our health, our economy, and nature.
Clean Air Day, October 7, is a GREAT OPPORTUNITY to take action for both of these at one time, with an online pledge.
As Co-Chair of Bay Area Clean Air Day, I'm asking that you take the pledge by going to the Clean Air Day website
and follow the prompts.
The pledge includes a variety of actions people can take to improve air quality and decrease climate-changing carbon emissions. Some are simple, such as planting an indoor plant or not eating meat for one day and some are more involved, such as swapping out your gas car for a zero emission electric car -- just like I did!
There are pledges for everyone, with special activities for kids and for businesses, organizations or groups.
Please join me by taking a pledge for clean air Wednesday!
