But perhaps most importantly, he has founded CAE Ryan Jacob, which is his Clean Air Engineering. His aim is to improve the world’s air, starting in California, using his skills and knowledge to convince others to sign up to this plan and become defendants of Mother Earth. In recent news, he has come across innovative ways to reduce air pollution and he wishes to share those with the world.
Ryan Jacob CAE on Reducing Air Pollution
There are lots of different things businesses and individuals alike can do to reduce air pollution. Those include:
- Ride a bike or walk when possible, leaving pollutant vehicles behind.
- Carpool when it isn’t possible to walk or bike, thereby instantly halving personal air pollution.
- If you cannot walk, ride, or carpool, then take a bus. That way, you are sharing emissions with others instead of creating your own.
- Purchase low emission, electric vehicles for your own car.
- Do not leave the lights on in a room when you leave it and try to use natural light as much as possible.
- Use energy efficient light bulbs all over the house. They use less and last longer as well.
- Always recycle glass, metal, cardboard, and plastic. Reuse what you can. An empty soda bottle makes for a fantastic plant grower, for instance.
- Stop using air conditioning units and use a fan instead. There is no need to be that cool all the time. Open a window, use thinner sheets, and switch on the fan.
- Try to buy things made from recycled materials. Upcycled furniture, second hand clothing, and recycled arts are just some examples.
- Complete a full home audit about the energy efficiency of your property so that you know what your personal contributions are. There are various online tools to do this.
- Use cold water to wash your clothes and dry them in the air when possible.
- Switch to water based cleaning products and paints. You will find they work just as well but contain low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which means they are better for the environment.
- Get rid of charcoal and use natural gas instead. In fact, if possible, stop using gas at all.
- Install solar panels and wind turbines where you can, as well as other sustainable technology, to generate power for your home and outbuildings.
- Plant trees as much as possible. Turn your garden into a forest and help with planting and conservation efforts.
- Get rid of artificial air fresheners and deodorants and use naturally scented, organic products instead.
- Make sure that the tires on your car are properly inflated and service it regularly according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Buy green electricity.
- Stop receiving junk mail through your door.
- Make sure all your appliances have an energy efficient rating and maintain and service them regularly.
