Do Just One Thing for Clean Air Action Day




On June 23, Clean Air Action Day, individuals have the opportunity to commit to clean air actions and share how they will lend a hand with our community. As the temperature rises, air quality generally worsens during “ozone season”, so it is important for residents to do their part to lessen emissions in the spring and summer.

They can choose to use the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), Fort Worth Transportation Authority or Denton County Transportation Authority; carpool or vanpool; limit or avoid idling; bicycle or walk instead of driving; and report smoking vehicles. Air North Texas encourages individuals, businesses and governments to make clean air choices by promoting behavioral and lifestyle changes that impact their health and the environment.

For more information and to share how you celebrate Clean Air Action Day, visit at AirNorthTexas.org.
