Hamilton’s Clean(er) Air – Celebrating at June’s My Green Adventures

Community members raved about June’s My Green Adventures, held June 6th and 7th. This month, we celebrated clean air in Hamilton. In the past, Hamilton was notorious for its smoggy skyline and poor air quality. However, Clean Air Hamilton’s release of the Air Quality Progress Report 2010 brought good news, reporting a decrease in nearly all pollutants in city air (yay!).

Green Venture wants to help Hamiltonians continue this positive trend! Visitors to EcoHouse during My Green Adventures learned how retiring your old gas lawnmower and using a program like CarShare Hamilton can reduce emissions of toxic pollutants and greenhouse gases. Kids flew homemade kites and made seed rockets with red clay and seeds from air-purifying native plants.

Thank you to everyone who participated in My Green Adventures this month! Don’t miss July’s My Green Adventures: All About Energy. As usual, it is the second weekend of the month: July 7th and 8th from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Stay green, friends.

Thanks to ArcelorMittal for their generous funding of My Green Adventures!
