Ozone Action Days Celebrates Second Year of This Environmental Effort

The key to better air quality is in each of our hands.  Literally.  When we "Ditch the Keys" and use alternative forms of transportation other than our cars, we're helping prevent the formation of harmful ground level ozone during the hot summer months.   A great time to  "Ditch the Keys" is May 18, which is Bike to Work Day across the country.  In Central Arkansas, Ozone Action Days is teaming up with Bicycle Advocacy of Central Arkansas (BACA), the City of Little Rock and City of North Little Rock to organize convoys of bicycle commuters  to ride to and from work on May 18.  An experienced cyclist will lead each convoy.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (April 16, 2012) – Our natural landscape in Arkansas does a lot for us; for one day this weekend, it’s time to return the favor. The Arkansas Earth Day Foundation will host the 2012 Earth Day Festival on Saturday, April 21, on the campus of Heifer International headquarters in downtown Little Rock from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Visitors can learn fun ways to contribute to our environment’s continued health, and can enjoy music and activities celebrating the Earth we inhabit. The Festival includes booths and hands-on demonstrations showing visitors how to be earth-conscious by recycling and reusing whenever possible. The Elevate Stage returns to the festival, where visitors can learn about all sorts of green topics, from yoga to raw food.
