On 20 June, Clean Air Day will see schools, hospitals, workplaces and communities across the UK run events to inspire people to take simple steps to protect their health, and their families’ health, from air pollution.
Titon is supporting Clean Air Day through a series of staff pledges with cars being swapped for bicycles or public transport, a complete idling ban, increasing our recycling programme and much more.
Our story of improving air quality shows that it is possible to address pollution. Everybody can have a positive impact on air quality and Titon would like to inspire everyone to understand what they can do to reduce air pollution and limit their impact on their health and that of others.
Air pollution affects your health from your first breath to your last, as the damage to our health can start when we’re a baby and carry on through into old age.
The good news is that our air pollution crisis is solvable and there are simple steps we can all take to help our family avoid toxic air and cut down on the pollution we emit – it’s good for us and good for the planet too.
20 June is a day of practical action and awareness-raising, so we can all breathe cleaner air. Clean Air Day gives every school, hospital, workplace and household free access to cutting-edge advice on avoiding and tackling urban air pollution, approved by health experts and academics.
All the information on how to get involved in Clean Air Day is available from the Clean Air Day website: www.cleanairday.org.uk
