Becoming Air Aware

Earth Day may take place in April, but there are plenty of year-round opportunities to work for a healthy environment – and there’s a great one coming up on May 1.

Join Austin Councilmember Alison Alter, Tim Jones with Environmental Health and safety Compliance and Policy at Samsung, Dr. Elena Craft, Senior Health Scientist with the Environmental Defense Fund, and Anton Cox, Air Quality Program Specialist with the Capital Area Council of Governments at the Air Quality Awareness Week Breakfast. The event takes place from 1am to 10am on May 1 at Mattie’s at Green Pastures, 811 W. Live Oak Street.

Breakfast is free, and you’ll get a chance to learn about regional clean air efforts.

Can’t make the breakfast, but interested in how you can help improve air quality in Central Texas? One of the biggest actions individuals can take is to reduce the miles we drive alone. Using options like transit, carpooling, flex hours, teleworking, biking, or ridesharing can make a difference!
