What can I do to reduce my air pollution?

  • Leave the car at home, and choose to walk or cycle instead 🚴‍♂️
  • Choose click and collect when you shop online – that way vans are already making the trip and not polluting city centers
  • Switch off your engine when you’re not moving
  • If you need to drive make sure your car is well maintained

 

Why is air pollution so important?

  • Air pollution can damage your lungs and impact your breathing
  • Exposure to air pollution can cause asthma, or make symptoms worse
  • Breathing air pollution can impact your heart and cause future heart problems
