The UK’s first National Clean Air Day – pledge to reduce the air pollution you create

16th June 2017

A Royal College of Physician’s (RCP) 2016 report attributed 40,000 deaths a year in the UK to outdoor air pollution, and the Government is under scrutiny to reduce illegal levels of air pollution in the “shortest possible time”.

Thursday 15th June is the UK’s first National Clean Air Day, to raise awareness of the impact air pollution has on everyone’s health, tips on how to avoid air pollution and information on the top five things you can do to reduce air pollution you create. The Eight Associates team made pledges to reduce the amount of air pollution we create – as individuals and a business – read these on our twitter profile and take your own pledge.

Read our post on where we think the Government’s draft plan falls short and what we think needs to be done to tackle the illegal levels of air pollution in London.
