World Environment Day is on Wednesday 5 June, the theme of which is 'Air Pollution'.

It's one thing to make a note of the date but, importantly, give some thought (in advance) to what you might do.

The message is simple: 'we can't stop breathing, but we can do something about the quality of air that we breathe'.

Small things which can help tackle Air Pollution:

  • Use public transport, car share, cycle or walk
  • Turn off your car engine when you are stationary
  • Switch to energy-efficient vehicles
  • Reduce consumption of meat and dairy to help cut methane emissions
  • Compost organic food items and recycle non-organic waste
  • Switch to high-efficiency equipment
  • Save energy by turning off lights and any electrical devices when not in use
  • Reduce, re-use, re-cycle,
