What can I do?

There are lots of things that we can do to help reduce air pollution and global warming. Here are a few ideas:

Use buses and trains

We can all help to reduce pollution by using our cars a lot less! It is better for the environment if we use buses or trains whenever we can.

Walk or cycle

Walking or cycling is even better than using the bus as they don't create any pollution at all. And they're good for your health. You could walk or cycle to school with friends.

Turn lights off

Have you ever been told to turn a light off? Well, it makes sense! Not only does it save money, but it means that less energy needs to be produced in our power stations - and that helps to reduce pollution.

Use renewable energy

Using 'renewable' energy is a way of reducing emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases. Examples include solar power, wind turbines and hydroelectricity.
