Clean Air Day for Individuals 

Why Celebrate Clean Air Day

Every year on the first Wednesday of June, Clean Air Day activities will be taking place in communities across the country to recognize everyone’s efforts in promoting clean air! 

Everyone is encouraged to participate — individuals, families, community groups, organizations, schools and workplaces — to demonstrate their commitment to improve the air we all share. Even events held outside of the specific timeframe can still be connected to Clean Air Day. We should all be working towards protecting the air we breathe all year round!

Clean Air Day and Your Home

Healthy Habits for Healthy Homes

Making it easy to Reduce Chemical Exposure

Keeping #theairweshare clean for everyone

Chemicals are all around us: some helpful, some harmful. Childhood exposure to household chemicals can interfere with healthy development and is linked to several chronic diseases. It’s no coincidence that children ARE more vulnerable than adults. 

Limiting exposure to harmful chemicals, toxins, and other environmental hazards can seem challenging. Still, the good news is that simple modifications in our daily lives can improve the air we breathe in our homes. 

Corsi-rosenthal Box

Corsi-rosenthal box fan filters are an affordable short-term solution for creating a clean-air room in your home. These DIY air-cleaning systems are made with simple materials found at any hardware store, at a fraction of the cost of many other air filtration solutions. The box fan pulls air through filters attached to its sides, and blows out clean air. Box fan filters like these can reduce indoor exposure to airborne particles. Check out our DIY video guide, and find the materials you will need to build your own box fan filter here.
