Clean Air Campaign 2019!, by Miss Jones
Date: 5th Jul 2019 @ 2:46pm
"Air pollution is the largest environmental risk to our health in the UK."
- Wirral Council, 2019
St. George's has teamed up with Wirral Council in support of their Clean Air Campaign! To ensure a healthier environment and a cleaner quality of air for our children and their furtures, we are encouraging everyone to make more eco-friendly choices in day-to-day life.
Our Eco Warriors helped spread awareness of the damaging effects of air pollution by talking to the Council and holding banners. In the coming weeks, our Eco Warriors will be collaborating with our Mini Police to help spread awareness of the damaging effects of air pollution.
Here are a few handy tips on how to help from Wirral Council:
- Switch off and save. If you’re in the car and at a stop, don’t leave your engine ticking over. This will prevent excessive air pollution and save you fuel. Turning off your engine when parked, loading or waiting at the roadside will save you money on fuel. It will also help look after you and your family’s health and the health of your community. Drivers may be fined for not switching off their engine when asked by an officer. Save money. Switch off. You’re the key!
- Take your feet to the street. Ditch the car and walk to school, to work or to the shops
- Take to two wheels. Leave the car at home and cycle or scoot
- Regularly service your car. Make sure it runs as efficiently and cleanly as possible
- Keep your car tyres inflated. Properly inflated tyres mean your car will be more efficient and use less fuel
- Carpool! Ask a colleague or friend to car share if travelling to the same place and share fuel and parking costs
- Ditch the car. Try an alternative transport option - buses, trains or even the ferry.
Pledge, change, save and #BeTheKey!
