The solution to air pollution isn’t simple, just as the cause of air pollution isn’t simple. Some of the problem lies with people, and some lies with nature. Given the complexity of the problem, taking a multi-pronged approach to reducing air pollution so we can improve air quality and breathe clean air is important.
Air pollution problems seem to be changing and growing. The EPA indicates air pollution is less today than even a few years ago, but breathing problems are increasing. Air pollution info is just the spring board to action so you can improve air quality in your home, office and neighborhood.
There are lots of ways to stop air pollution. The combination of personal action, legislative measures and market pressures combine to make for better air quality.

Nature puts pollution in the air through volcanic eruptions, animal metabolism, and wind storms that whip up dust and dirt. Humans contribute more than nature does to pollution in the air, and that’s a big problem. Nature has ways to clean up the mess it makes. We need to follow in Mother Nature’s steps and […]
Pollution from car emissions impacts air quality, damages structures like buildings and bridges, and reduces water quality.
