Whew, it’s hot out there! The temperature is going up and so is ground-level ozone!
Summer is a wonderful time for being active and getting outdoors, but what so many people are unaware of is that many of those summer activities can end up causing the air quality in the Inland Northwest to become poor and harmful to our health. Pollutants emitted from cars, lawnmowers and yard tools, vapors from gasoline, paints, cleaning fluids and other such chemicals react in the summer sun to create ground-level ozone.
Using a commute alternative to work is a great way to help reduce ground-level ozone from forming. There are also things you can do at home, on the go, and in the yard to help as well.
