Bay Area all in for Clean Air Day

Last year, 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. The good news is we can all do our part to make clean air a reality wherever you are. So join us for this year’s Clean Air Day on October 7th!


“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 7th.”
