Air quality

Air pollution is caused by natural and man-made particles and gases. Substances like pollen or emissions from industry, vehicles, buildings or agricultural chemicals and sprays can all contribute to pollution in the air.

Air pollution can affect our health, which is why the government requires councils in all areas to monitor pollution levels.

We believe that all of us can have an impact on air quality by using more sustainable travel options and also by encouraging others to be aware how simple changes can make a big difference to the air that we breathe.
