As we approach California Clean Air Day (only six weeks until October 2nd!), organizations across the state are prepping to clear the air. Join them by taking our Clean Air Pledge for organizations or individuals. Here are a three great examples of ways Californians are banding together for clean air:
City of Santa Cruz
The city is launching a multifaceted celebration of California Clean Air Day, including:
- Launching a new Ecopass program to give free bus passes to every person who works in downtown Santa Cruz
- Hosting a tree planting event
- Launching an idle free campus campaign
“The City of Santa Cruz’s participation in Clean Air Day allows us to amplify the promotion and uptake of actions residents can take to improve outdoor air quality and reduce emissions.”
Breathe California is joining together with the Sacramento Air Quality Management District to support the next generation of clean air leaders, hosting a clean air contest for local elementary school children leading up to California Clean Air Day, when they’ll hold a high-energy celebration for clean air featuring the region’s clean air mascot, Scooter!
