We are all made from stardust
Knowing no borders, boundaries or lines on a map, the air is shared by all living beings on the planet.
The Air we Breathe connects us ALL. Present. Past. Future.
Your next breath may contain elements, which were just days before, exhaled as a polar bear snored. Some of the elements will have been inhaled by your great Great GREAT Grandparents and one day, will be exhaled by your children’s Children’s GREAT Grandchildren.
With profound and often overlooked impacts on human, animal, plant and ecosystem health, addressing air quality issues is essential in protecting the health and wellness of People and Planet.
It’s all connected
Show you care. Respect and Protect our Air.
