Clean Air Action Days happen semi-frequently throughout the year in West Michigan, allowing the community to create cleaner air for West Michigan and beyond.

When the coalition declares a Clean Air Action Day, there is a list of things people can do to reduce emissions:

  • Refuel vehicles before or after a Clean Air Action Day
  • Delay lawn cutting or other maintenance activities
  • Try not to use charcoal lighter fluid, solvent-based paint, or degreasers
  • Carpool or use public transit

The West Michigan Clean Air Coalition is a partnership of businesses, academic institutions, government agencies, industry, and non-profit organizations in Kent, Ottawa, Muskegon, and Kalamazoo counties working together to achieve cleaner air in the region through the education and promotion of voluntary emission reduction activities.
