Promoting Air Quality


Did you know that just by walking to school you will be reducing your exposure to air pollution?
Air pollution inside the vehicle is often double what someone walking the same route will be exposed to. This is because the polluted air gets trapped inside the car with no dispersal factors such as sunlight and wind.
You can improve that even more by walking quieter, less polluted routes that you could not take in the car such as footpaths and walking only routes. It is also a great way to help get your minimum requirement of daily exercise, making you even healthier.
