Air Pollution Facts & Tips
As a resource for communities around the state, Oregon Environmental Council has developed a fact sheet that describes how air pollution affects Oregonians’ health, the major sources of air pollution in Oregon, and steps you can take to protect yourself and your family. This fact sheet is available in English, Chinese-simplified, Chinese-traditional, Russian, Somali, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
Oregon Environmental Council has been a long-time champion for health-first clean air solutions. We promote protective public policies, including the 2019 diesel clean-up bill; provide tips on how to reduce personal exposure to air pollution as well as how to reduce ones’ own contribution to air pollution (both indoors and outdoors); and advocate that the communities most vulnerable to and impacted by air pollution be informed and involved in decisions.
Special thanks to APANO, Beyond Toxics, Green Lents, OPAL, and PCUN for providing input on the fact sheet content.
