Transport is the main source of air pollution in the area. Visit http://www.travelwest.info/ to help you make better travel choices for you and the environment.
A recent study by Healthy Air Campaign, King's College London and Camden council found that travelling on foot or by bike exposed commuters to significantly fewer fumes than using a car or bus - so get fit and help reduce air pollution by cycling.
If you have access to an electric vehicle, see where our Source West charging points are located: http://www.sourcewest.info/
To reduce air pollution at home:
- Buy water based or low solvent paints, varnishes, glues and wood preservers.
- Avoid burning solid fuels. If you live in the smoke control area (within former Bath City boundary) use only authorised (smokeless) fuels.
- Don't light bonfires when pollution levels in the area are high.
- Never burn plastic or rubber.
