Reducing Air Pollution in Our Environment

July 26, 2011

Here are some tips that will help reduce air pollution in our environment and make you "greener" at the same time:

In addition to being very expensive to run, SUVs are very fuel inefficient. They emit twice as much carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen dioxide as an average car. These chemicals contribute to air pollution as well as global warming!

By recycling glass, paper, batteries, engine oil and aluminium cans, these materials can be re-used, and you will reduce the volume of waste incinerated by up to 70%.

Bicycles produce neither greenhouse gases nor pollution  and are therefore the least polluting mode of transport.

Cars often pollute more on short trips when the motor is cold, so try to walk or cycle instead.

During cold winter days, do not warm up your car’s engine while idle.  It is safe to start the journey with a cold engine, and you will save on fuel.

Why not buy one of the new generation vehicles? A hybrid car consumes between 20 % and 30 % less fuel and generates far less CO2 than a classical vehicle. So why not pollute less and save money – all at once?
