Do a little, save a lot!

Did you know that the average adult breathes about 20,000 times each day and that both children and the elderly face a greater risk of being affected by air pollution, as do people with heart, respiratory or other ailments. Our daily use of electricity and fuel contributes to air pollution. That means the choices we make every day can directly affect air quality and our health.

Clean Air Tip of the Week

For the week of November 23, 2014:
As Winter rapidly approaches, many bicycle-commuters are gearing up to store their equipment for the next 3 months… but not all of them. Fat tire bikes, with their 4+ inch tires, make an impression the first time you see them. The fat tire (2 times the tread width as a standard mountain bike tire) allows for more contact than their sibling, the mountain bike. Fat tire bikes are popping up across Wisconsin - especially in the winter months. The extra-large tread patch allows for more contact with the snow and slippery roads and trails. The increased contact enables riders to continue their riding year-round, even in Wisconsin [exit DNR]. If willing to brave the cold, fat tire bikes allow bikers to continue reducing their emissions throughout the year, adding to their impact on clean air!
