The Foundation for Clean Air Progress was formed to provide public education and information about air quality progress.
During the past 29 years, air quality in the United States has improved dramatically as a result of the combined efforts of government, industry, and individuals. Yet, research indicates that the public is largely unaware of this progress and believes that air quality is generally poor and deteriorating.
We aim to educate the public about the great strides that have been made as well as the steps individuals and organizations can take to contribute to continued progress.
Our tips for clearing the air are comprised of those advocated by the American Lung Association, EPA and other environmental and health advocacy organizations. What differentiates us is the fact that we take a positive approach to discuss air quality.
We also advise on ways and devices that help remove contaminants from the air in a room to improve indoor air quality. Examples of these devices are air purifiers and humidifiers (add moisture to the air to prevent dryness that can cause irritation in many parts of the body).
