What Can I Do?
Many community members are unaware that individual activities can significantly improve the invisible atmosphere that surrounds us. There are numerous actions, both organizational and individual, that can help improve air quality while at home, at work, or while on the road.
All of the suggested actions work toward reducing emissions. Emission reductions help prevent the formation of ground-level ozone and particulate matter. Both pollutants can have serious health effects.
On days when there is a high potential for ground-level ozone or particulate matter to reach unhealthy levels, meteorologists declare Clean Air Action days. On these days, and every day, the West Michigan Clean Air Coalition encourages everyone to join together and voluntarily implement emission reduction behaviors at work, home, or in their vehicles in an effort to reduce emissions and clear the air.
