Clean Air Action Day has been rescheduled for Aug. 5 this year. Traditionally held at the beginning of summer, Clean Air Action Day is a day when Air North Texas asks residents to pledge to do simple things in their everyday lives to positively impact air quality.

This year, to encourage social distancing, North Texans can still participate by choosing to work from home when able to, as well as by packing lunch in a reusable bag, buying locally-grown foods or purchasing an eco-friendly vehicle.

Clean Air Action Day was created more than 10 years ago to educate the public on air quality measures. Since its inception, the event has helped people determine what they can do to improve air quality both inside and outside the home. The hope is to reduce the number of high-ozone level days in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and protect people’s health.

Clean air actions are not limited to Aug. 5. Make it a habit to think about and act on how you can improve air quality every day in multiple ways. A good first step in the fight for better air quality is signing up for air pollution alerts. Notifications will be issued when ozone levels are predicted to be unhealthy so you can take extra precautions and limit actions that affect air quality on those days.

Visit the Air North Texas website for resources and information on programs that can help improve air quality. These resources include how to find ways to work from home efficiently, reduce idling, enforce smoking vehicle law, conserve water and electricity and more.
