    Healthy air is in our hands every time we decide to go somewhere.

    Do I pick up the car keys and call a friend to share the ride? Or maybe jump on a bus or streetcar? Or grab the bike or put on comfortable shoes and take a walk? Choosing to not drive alone, even just one trip a week, can eliminate more than 1,000 pounds of air pollution annually. It also reduces greenhouse gases and stormwater pollution, and can save you money.

    If you have to drive, combine errands to reduce the number of car trips; avoid engine idling at drive thru lines or when waiting for kids at school; check tire pressure monthly; when refueling, stop at the click instead of topping-off… The choices we make on a daily basis can save us money and make a big difference towards cleaner air.
