Poor air quality affects many Staffordshire communities and is the largest environmental risk to public health in this country. It is responsible for the deaths of up to 390 people in Staffordshire very year. It affects everyone of any age.
Vehicle emissions are by far the biggest problem, causing the vast majority of the polluted air that we breathe in, but the good news is that if everyone does their bit and does one small thing to travel differently one day a week, everyone can breathe easier.
Air Aware Staffordshire is a campaign that is on a mission to reduce the number of single person journeys and getting people out of their cars just one day a week. By showcasing the range of small actions people can do throughout the year, we’ll get everyone making a difference.
Are you and your organisation in? Great! Every clean air day in June you can share the social media content from @StaffordshireCC and @yourstaffordshire, or use the content below which you can download.
There are also email footers and collateral for you to use across your other communications channels.
The below resources can be used by anyone across Staffordshire to promote the Air Aware campaign and help to keep Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire breathe easier.
