Bay Area all in for Clean Air Day

From Santa Cruz to the Silicon Valley to San Francisco and the East Bay, Mayors, nonprofit organizations, government agencies and corporate partners were going all in for California Clean Air Day. While the Bay Area may have a reputation for clean air and clear skies, the reality is that in many parts of the Bay Area, air quality is a real concern. And, even if you are in the most pristine location, indoor air quality is often a serious issue.

“Clean air is critical to the health, vitality and overall quality of life of our region. Employers across the Bay Area are stepping up to do their part to improve air quality for everyone, through their own operations and the actions of their workers. But there is much more work to be done to ensure that every day is clean air day. And we must redouble our efforts to address past inequities that too often resulted in unhealthy air quality for economically disadvantaged communities and communities of color.”

Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia

The good news is we can all do our part to make clean air a reality wherever you are. Join millions of participants by pledging to take at least one action that will help clean our air on October 4th!

“As we saw during the recent wildfires, climate change is reducing the gains California has made in cleaning the air and it’s more important than ever to take actions that are good for the climate and for our air quality. The Air District is proud to be a part of California Clean Air Day, and we hope all Bay Area residents will join us in taking action to improve the air we breathe on October 4th.”

Jack Broadbent, former Executive Officer & Air Pollution Control Officer, Bay Area Air Quality Management District.
