Breathe Clean Festival on November 18
Inversion season is upon us (yuck!)
As we prepare for colder weather and snowfall, it’s also important to understand how to take action on air quality at this time of year.
UCAIR has helpful resources for understanding Utah’s air pollution problem and what you can do about it. SLCgreen also has a handy list of actions you can take to reduce your contribution to the bad air.
We’d also like to invite you to come to a free community event on November 18 to learn more.
There will be presentations from organizations involved in tackling this issue, as well as helpful giveaways for you and your family (air masks, LED lights, home insulation kits, and more!)
Plus there will be fun things (balloon animals, face painting, other kids activities, and food trucks!)
You’ll also get to talk with air quality researchers and learn more about the latest research on how pollution is distributed across the valley.
Join us on November 18th and help spread the word!
What: Breathe Clean Festival (Facebook event)
When: Saturday, November 18, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

In other air quality news . . .
There is now a $1,000 rebate available for switching out your wood stove to a gas-powered version. Not only can you save money, but you’ll help reduce a significant source of Salt Lake City’s air pollution.
Over their lifetime, wood stoves burn the equivalent amount of particulate matter as 90 sport utility vehicles. Yowza!
Thanks for taking action and we hope to see you on November 18!
