Breathing Fresh Air

Breathe Well

Everyone benefits from being able to breathe a little easier. Here are some ways to improve the air we breathe:

  • Be Idle-Free

    Cars and trucks are the top source of pollution in the Greater Cincinnati area. Idling is harmful to our air quality, health, and wallets. This Be Idle Free Brochure from the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency provides resources, signage and support to help schools, businesses, and communities start an Idle-Free campaign to improve the air we breathe. 
  • Stop Smoking

    website to enroll or learn more.

  • Create Tobacco-Free Environments

    The only way to fully prevent exposure to tobacco smoke and the effects of the harmful chemicals is to create tobacco-free environments. Visit the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids website for resources and tips for how to take action. 
  • Know Your Outdoor Air Quality
