Which is why we’ve put together a blog to help explain emissions to you and get you on the road to a zero-emission future!
What Are Emissions?
Emissions is the term used to describe the gases and particles which are put into the air or emitted by various sources. When chemicals such as carbon dioxide, are emitted, they produce what we call air pollution or Greenhouse emissions. While there are many sources for emissions, vehicles are a significant contributor, releasing approximately 333 million tons of carbon dioxide into the air each year.
How Are They Harmful?
Harmful emissions have a massive impact on the thing that we, and other living creatures, need to survive – air. Poor air quality caused by harmful emissions increases asthma and bronchitis and can intensify the risk of getting serious illnesses.
What You Can Do
For our planet to thrive, we need to drastically eliminate the amount of harmful emissions that we produce. This can feel a little daunting, but if each person does their part, it’ll make a huge difference. An easy, and awesome, way to cut emissions is to stop relying on gas-guzzling cars for transportation. By choosing an electric vehicle, bike, public transportation, or other shared mobility options you’re helping significantly reduce your carbon footprint.
