    Things that you can do at home include:

    • Turning off all lights when not in use (some electricity is powered by coal and coal contributes to air pollution)
    • Recycle, it allows for less raw materials to be extracted which in itself allows for less pollution and emissions to be released from the manufacturing practices that produce paper and paper-based products
    • Have more plants in your home, they help filter the air
    • Wash your clothes in warm or cold water versus hot water
    • Do not smoke indoors

    You could also:

    • Carpool
    • Use public transportation
    • Obey speed limit
    • Accelerate slowly
    • Buy environmentally friendly products

    Since I live in Southern California, driving a hybrid car is a great way to reduce air pollution. Southern California has some of the worst air quality in the world for many reasons, with one of those being car pollution. Southern California doesn’t really have a great public transportation system, so traffic is almost always very congested.

    Driving a hybrid not only helps the environment, but it also helps your pocket book, with less trips to the gas station. With gas prices reaching record highs, doing a favor for yourself and the environment seems like a win-win situation to me! 

    I attached a link at the bottom for more information on hybrid vehicles.
