Take Action for Clean Air This Summer

The CleanAirNJ campaign is intended to educate the public about NJ’s most persistent air pollution problem, ground-level ozone (also known as smog); and the role of the public in reducing the emissions that cause smog.  The campaign also provides information on making safe choices during days with high ozone concentrations. Since vehicles contribute to more than half of the smog formed in New Jersey, an important part of this effort is encouraging smog-reducing practices such as reducing emissions from driving (via use of public transportation, car-pooling, and purchase of efficient cars).
