City Kicks Off Knozone Awareness With IPS
The City of Indianapolis kicked off Knozone Action season by targeting school kids Tuesday.
Officials with SustainIndy turned out at IPS School 84 to launch a new program aimed at teaching first through 4th graders all about air, air quality and air pollution. Office of Sustainability Director John Hazlett says the hope is that kids will take what they learn and re-educate their parents and families about clean air.
Hazlett says the program emphasizes carpooling, using public transportation, filling gas tanks and mowing grass after 6pm, turning off lights when not in use and reducing use of chemicals and or paints. Knozone Action Days alert the public to take action when air quality levels drop.
