Air Pollution and Your Health

There is no way to prevent air pollution, its all around us. But, there are many ways to reduce air pollution. You can reduce air pollution at home, driving wise, buying smart, and for your health. Some examples of reducing air pollution at home are conserving energy, planting trees around your house, recycling things that are recyclable, and many more things. You can reduce air pollution driving wise by carpooling, using an energy-conserving motor, keeping tires properly inflated, and many more things. Reducing air pollution for your health is big. You can do this by minimizing sun exposure, removing asthma triggers from your home, checking daily air qualities, and more. Lastly, you can reduce air pollution by buying smarter.
