The Air District is inviting residents to participate in the sixth annual California Clean Air Day on October 4. Designed around individual actions, the event is a statewide initiative built on the idea that shared experiences unite people to improve community health. 

Spare the Air Status

Bay Area residents, community groups, businesses, and local government agencies can participate by visiting and taking the Clean Air Day pledge, which signifies a commitment to take actions that lead to cleaner air in their communities. The pledge offers a menu of activities that help clear the air, from changing air filters to opting not to drive to switching out harmful cleaning products.

Individual actions, when taken as a whole, can make a big impact. In 2022, nearly 2 million people and over 650 organizations pledged to do their part to improve air quality. This year, Clean Air Day will place a special focus on engaging and supporting youth in cleaning the air with education programs in schools and student-led efforts to raise awareness of air pollution issues.

Hosted by the Coalition for Clean Air, Clean Air Day is an accessible opportunity that allows for virtual and in-person participation. For a full list of Clean Air Day events being held around the Bay Area, visit
