TALK and join forces to beat pollution together

The top 5 ways you can raise awareness about air pollution and take steps towards cleaner air together:

#1. Talk the talk

Most people don’t know how to protect themselves from air pollution. You can help them by sharing our REDUCE and AVOID tips.

#2. Email or tweet your council

Tell your local councillor that you’re worried about air pollution and that you support them taking action to clean up your town’s air. You can find their contact details here.

#3. Share the school run

Chat to other parents at the school gates about setting up a car-share or a walking bus to make the air cleaner for every child at school. Find out how you can cut traffic by 30% with the WOW Challenge from Living Streets.

#4. Don’t be afraid to ask

Be bold and ask your children’s headteacher or your HR manager how they’re helping to make our air cleaner (and if they don’t know, point them in the direction of our REDUCE and AVOID tips).

#5. Urge companies to find a pollution solution

Good companies solve problems. Use email, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to ask them to come up with low pollution ideas. Great Ormond Street Hospital asked its taxi firms to go electric and now only recommends electric taxis to patients and visitors.
