North Texans celebrated Clean Air Action Day on June 21, committing to more than 2,800 actions intended to help improve air quality.

With this annual event, Air North Texas informs residents about air quality problem and requests individuals, businesses and governments to help improve air quality by pledging to implement different types of clean air strategies into their daily routines.

Currently, nine counties are in nonattainment of the 2015 eight-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard. Clean Air Action Day gives North Texans a chance to actively participate in the improvement of air quality by integrating simple steps into their daily activities.

Individuals selected from among more than 20 commitments. The top three were:

  • Take lunch to work or summer activities.
  • Maintain consistent driving speed.
  • Combine trips or drive less.

These three actions, plus others like biking or walking to work, carpooling and taking public transit, all contribute to improving air quality throughout the DFW area.
