Fight against air pollution

Every time you take a breath, you expose yourself to particulate matter, which can be hazardous to your health.

Particulate matter pollution is made up of tiny particles that can affect you and your family’s health. And it comes from things we use every day—from yard equipment, to energy use, and even wood burning fires.
