Bad air quality affects some of Staffordshire’s 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 emission is by far the biggest problem, creating the majority of the air we breathe.
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’s on a mission to reduce the number of single person journeys and getting people out of their cars just 1 day a week. By showcasing the range of small actions people can do over the next 12 months, we’ll get everyone making a difference.
Are you and your organisation in? Great! From Clean Air Day on Thursday 20 June, you can share the social media content from @StaffordshireCC and @yourstaffordshire, or use the content below which you can download.
