May is Clean Air Month - a time to think about what you can do to help keep our air clean. This is the EcoMinute, and I am Mary Gutierrez, Executive Director for Earth Ethics, Inc. We can all make positive steps to improve the quality of our air.

Ways we can improve air quality are often based around reducing our use of electricity and using transportion more efficiently. We can also support legislation which improves air quality.  A few tips on driving include driving the speed limit, not idling when you don’t have to and keeping your vehicle maintained. 

Proper maintenance includes proper air inflation in the tires and not carrying any extra weight in the trunk. Or even better, use public transportation, carpool, walk or ride your bike.

May is also National Bike Month. For more information, visit www. or go and look under the programs dropdown menu.
