All of this matters for our health.

which is why we need a government & community that are accountable to it.

HVAC controls the air circulating in your home.

A healthy HVAC {heating/ventilation/air conditioning} system goes a long way. This cools, filters, and even moves the air inside of your home.  

Dangers: not changing the filters regularly. This causes the air you breathe in your home to be dirty/contaminated.

Solution: Change your filters every month.

trees 2.001.png
Arrow dotted 3.001.png

The trees help you breathe better.

Trees produce more oxygen for us to breathe.  That's why greener neighborhoods are healthier neighborhoods  

Dangers: The more cement there is in a neighborhood, the more heat that is trapped - causing more heat-related illness. Add any pollutants also present in the air/soil, and you have double trouble.

Solution:

  • Plant trees.

  • Demand more green spaces.

  • Learn how to take care of indoor plants.

Arrow dotted 3.001.png

Polluting factories contaminate the air you breathe in your neighborhood.

Well after the Industrial Revolution of the 1700s, and before the Clean Air Amendment of 1970, there were no strong national regulations in place to hold polluting factories accountable to the neighborhoods they were polluting.  

Dangers: Factories can bring dangerous chemicals in the air that impair residents' ability to breathe normally - leading to chronic sickness, cancer, and death.

The soil beneath us can also lead to health complications, when contaminated

"When you plant a flower, and the flower doesn't grow, you don't blame the flower, you look at its environment."  What goes up must come down: so, if there is a facility that is polluting the air or even too much concrete on the surface, it is also impacting the ground.  This can lead to the inability to have healthy green spaces (which impact our air quality) and can also lead to diseases like cancer.  

Dangers: Vehicle exhaust, polluting businesses/facilities can bring dangerous chemicals into the ground.

Solution:

  • Drive less & electrify vehicles

  • Recycle & compost more (reduces landfills)

  • Be vigilant of the polluting facilities in your neighborhood to make sure your ground is not compromised.

gas stoves 
burn dangerous methane gas. 

Did you know that gas stoves are burning methane gas?   

Dangers: Burning methane gas releases dangerous pollutants (i.e. NOx, PM) right into your home -- and your kitchen vents often blow them right back into your kitchen (not outside) .
