It’s the end of the week and we always enjoy sharing events that will benefit the community. We recently have shared the event “Dinner with friends” which is a fundraiser benefiting San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House. You may read more about this great benefit by visiting¬†here. Another event we would like to share is the “Great Race for Clean Air” in the Bay Area This will be a fun event for Bay area employers to compete to see which team or group help lower the CO2 levels.This event will encourage individuals who will be competing to use different ways to commute by carpooling,walking and bicycling. Once you register your company you will receive a packet with instructions and be able to track the daily commute to see who has the highest clean commute day.In 2012,participants who were part of the race saved 674 tons of CO2.The air district in the Bay area is interested in involving the nine counties to participate in events that will benefit the environment.

When carbon dioxide levels are high, then the air pollution will rise.Carbon dioxide emissions impact human health by displacing oxygen in the atmosphere. Breathing becomes more difficult as carbon dioxide levels rise. In closed areas, high levels of carbon dioxide can lead to health complaints such as headaches. Carbon dioxide levels may indicate high levels of other harmful air pollutants such as volatile organic compounds which contribute to indoor air pollution.Carbon dioxide emissions impact human health by displacing oxygen in the atmosphere.
