Getting involved 

Action to take now

Air pollution affects all of us - and harms the planet.

Many thanks to the 599 people who signed out petition to St.Albans District Council to Clean Up Our Air. Following the presentation of the petition we'll be talking to the Environment Scrutiny Committee.

But there's practical stuff you can do too -
  • walk or cycle for all short journeys: great exercise and no pollution
  • any journey that can't be walked or cycled, try and share lifts with someone: a sociable way to halve the pollution
  • switch your engine off when your car is stationary - it will reduce your exposure to air pollution and help local air quality.
  • if you take a taxi, ask for an electric taxi. There are a few around St.Albans already, but if we keep asking for them there'll be more. If the taxi is idling its engine, ask the driver not to.
  • trees and plants are proven to catch and reduce harmful particles in air - green up your front garden and clean up the air in your street.

Anyone who watch Sir David Attenborough's Blue Planet II saw that plastic poses an increasing threat to our environment.

There's loads you can do..

Join in with #PlasticFreeFriday - ditch single use plastics for one day a week and share your successes and setbacks with @stalbansfoe

Come long to the Plastic Free Community picnic as part of Sustainable St.Albans Week on 22nd April in Highfield Park and share some plastic free fun.

Refuse the straw!

Keep your eyes open and you'll see discarded plastic drinking straws all over the place. They're used for a matter of minutes and then become part of the increasing volume of plastic debris that will pollute the environment for thousands of years.

We can all manage without disposable straws.

Come along to one of the events on our meetings and events page.
