8 Tips For Protecting Your Lungs From Unhealthy Air

Don’t burn trash or wood. 
The ash and soot caused by the burning of wood and trash contributes to particle pollution in the atmosphere.

Don’t use gasoline-powered yard equipment. 
Gasoline-powered lawn mowers, trimmers, and leaf blowers all add to the air pollution and may irritate your lungs while carrying out your yard chores.

Encourage others to reduce their carbon footprint. 
Pressurize your local schools to run their buses according to the Clean School Bus Campaign. That means not leaving the engine running while waiting outside buildings and applying for funding for projects helping to reduce emissions.

Ask friends, family, and neighbors to reduce their energy use.
