Simple Steps. Better Air.

We are partnering with the Simple Steps. Better Air. program of the Regional Air Quality Council to reduce car trips in Boulder County and improve air quality in the entire Denver metropolitan area. We hope you join us. It’s as simple as skipping two car trips a week to help limit emissions and ground-level ozone, a harmful pollutant. Combining errand trips, packing a lunch instead of driving, carpooling or taking the bus or train instead of your vehicle are fantastic ways to make a positive impact. Here’s what you do: Take a photo (or record a short video) showing how you skipped a car trip and post it on social media using “#JustSkip2”. Make sure to challenge someone else in your post to #JustSkip2 so we pass it on and keep the conversation going.

This program is supported by grant funding from the Regional Air Quality Council in an effort to reduce ground-level ozone pollution.
