Air pollution is real and harms the health of millions. But there are lots of simple things we can do to improve air quality and look after our own and other people’s health. Clean Air Day is a chance to find out more about air pollution, share information with friends and colleagues, and help make the air cleaner and healthier for everyone.

Did you know that air pollution on side streets is potentially up to 20% less than on busy roads? Or that the most polluted place to be on the roads is inside a vehicle as they gather pollution?

Clean Air Day on 21 June is a chance to find out more about air pollution, learn how to avoid it and discover the practical things that people can do to cut local pollution.

Come and join St Helens Council in Church Square, St Helens today to find out what you can do to take action on air quality. We’ll be there from 9:30am – 4:00pm taking pledges, photos & giving out freebies!

For more information, contact Lucy Northey, Scientific Officer Environmental Protection Department, St.Helens Council lucynorthey@sthelens.gov.uk
