Simple Steps to Clean the Air

We know that getting in your own car and driving is often the easiest and quickest option, but you may not know that a small change in the choices we make can have a big impact. Choose a clean commute mode such as riding the bus, carpooling, vanpooling, bicycling, or walking.

  • Wait to fuel your car until after 5 p.m.
  • Don’t top off your gas tank
  • Reduce vehicle engine idling
  • Combine errands
  • Don’t mow your lawn on Ozone Action Days
