  • Healthy Air Is In Our Hands Campaign and Contest Rules

    Pima County Department of Environmental Quality has launched a campaign to encourage actions to keep the air healthy to breathe. As part of the "Healthy Air Is In Our Hands" campaign, residents can take a "Drive-Less Pledge" for Healthy Air and pledge to carpool, take transit, ride a bike, or walk instead of driving by themselves one day a week. A $100 gift card winner will be chosen at random from those who take the pledge.
