Support Cleaner Air and Your Local Farmer

Eating locally grown food is a nutritious way to improve air quality in the New York metro area. Not only is locally grown food fresh, but it also reduces pollution because it doesn’t have to travel as far from the soil to your kitchen table. Food that is transported just a short distance before it is consumed reduces the amount of emissions from the vehicles used to carry them, leading to better air quality for everyone. This is why Clean Air NY will be touring numerous farmers’ markets this fall in New York City, on Long Island and in the Lower Hudson Valley. For more details and specific dates, visit our Facebook event and RSVP!
