N. Texas sets mark for clean air commitments

 

On June 24, the seventh annual Clean Air Action Day, the North Central Texas Council of Governments and Air North Texas encouraged North Texans to lend a hand to help improve air quality by committing to at least one “clean air action.”


This year, there was tremendous participation in Air North Texas’ flagship air quality event. With a 57 percent increase over last year, the most commitments to date were recorded.


In 2016, the most popular commitment chosen was maintaining personal vehicles through oil changes or checking tire pressure. Other popular commitments made included taking lunch to work, combining trips and buying locally. Participants also chose to carpool, use mass transit, telecommute and encourage others to be air aware.


Air North Texas partners played an important role in helping make the 2016 event a success. The City of Dallas held its first Clean Air Action Day event at City Hall Plaza and the Central Library on June 24, where staff educated the public about improving air quality and staying healthy. The City offered many options for lunch and arranged for a walk to the Dallas Farmers Market. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport also had significant internal participation for Clean Air Action Day, thanks in part to an online Ozone 101 course for employees.

 

Clean Air Action Day Request for Action


Thanks to all who participated in this year’s Clean Air Action Day. Strong participation from North Texans reinforces the idea that simple actions can make a difference when implemented collectively. Remember to log Clean Air Action Day commitments at AirNorthTexas.org and continue to strive for better air all year long.
