Making a Difference with Air Quality Awareness

Happy Air Quality Awareness Week! All of us at the Lung Institute are dedicated to helping individuals breathe easier. Whether you suffer from lung disease or not, poor air quality can have a huge impact on your daily life. This week is our chance to advocate for cleaner air. Learn how you can make a difference each day of the week!


Ban the Bottle. One plastic bottle can take hundreds of years to decompose. By using a reusable water bottle, you can make a difference.


By turning down your thermostat when you are away and asleep, you can save money and energy—an estimated 1 percent savings for each degree lowered.


The best ways to reduce air pollution are by walking and riding a bicycle instead of driving.


Workers who switch to carpooling save over $1,000 every year and avoid driving an average of 5,000 miles per year, which means saving $0.50 per mile from maintenance.


The average American household uses almost 3 gallons of fuel per day—enough to fill 21 standard bathtubs a year.

To learn more about how you can make a difference, join the Lung Institute team this Wednesday at Lykes Gaslight Park in downtown Tampa, Florida from 11am to 2pm. We will be raising awareness about how you can be the change our environment so desperately needs.
