Healthy Schools Day
is April 4th, 2019
When it comes to diesel emissions and children’s health…
Does your school get an “A” for action?
- Diesel emissions can cause cancer and respiratory problems, and are linked to other health effects. Children are more vulnerable to harm.
- Diesel-powered buses can be an important source of exposure for children.
- Cleaner bus technologies and a range of low-cost options can reduce exposures for students, staff and communities.
This Healthy Schools Day, let’s take action on diesel emissions to ensure healthier air for our kids.
