Tackling Air Pollution
Deal Town Council is committed to tackling air pollution.
Air pollution is a cunning opponent to tackle – it’s invisible. The air pollution you can see is bad, but the pollution that really harms us is not only invisible but odourless too. And it really kills. Air pollution is responsible for seven million early deaths every year – that’s tens of thousands of people across the UK dying from breathing our air. That’s the point really, we can’t avoid the air pollution that’s there because we can’t stop breathing.
Whilst we can’t see air pollution, we know what causes it. To help us all tackle air pollution, Deal Town Council has linked up with Global Action Plan's Clean Air Hub and also become an Official Supporter of Clean Air Day.
