California Clean Air Day – October 5
Capitol Corridor is joining hundreds of organizations to celebrate California Clean Air Day leading up to and on Wednesday, October 5th. California Clean Air Day encourages individuals, businesses, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations to take action to improve air quality and protect public health by inviting people to pledge to make a different and uniting to take action.
We can all join the effort by taking the Clean Air Day Pledge and committing to clear the air by taking action. Clean Air Day organizers reported that last year 1.8 million people across California took approximately 3.4 million actions to help improve air quality. Examples of activities for those who take the Pledge include plant a home garden or plant at a community garden, switch to using natural all-purpose cleaner, buy produce locally, or by taking other actions. You can take the pledge here: Take the Clean Air Pledge – California Clean Air Day

Trains, stations, and buses are also keeping hand sanitizer readily available to help keep hands clean.
