Scooter’s “Green” Gardening Tips

Hi Friends!

Now that school is out for the summer, I know that many of you will be spending lots of time outside. Personally, this is my favorite time of year because I love spending time outdoors. One of my favorite hobbies is gardening with my family. We plant trees whenever we have a chance and water all of our plants only when necessary (that helps save water!), which keeps them nice and healthy. Plants are important for the environment and provide clean air for us to breathe. As you may know, there are many “green” gardening tips and Earth-friendly ways to help Spare The Air in your neighborhood, and around your home and garden. Here are some of the ways my family and I help Spare The Air!

The 24th Spare The Air season is here!

Hi Friends,

The 24th Spare The Air season is here.

CLEAN AIR IS UP TO US! Between now and Halloween, we all need to help and do our part to reduce air pollution, especially smog. Together we can Spare The Air and make a big difference!

Air pollution can cause health problems for everyone, but it’s even worse for kids! You see, children just like you are at a greater risk from air pollution because your lungs are still developing and you breathe more rapidly than adults, which increases your exposure.

Why Scooter can’t burn wood in his fireplace!

Hi Friends!

burn_logo_2014As you know, I love being outside enjoying nature and the fresh, clean air. That being said, between the months of November and February, when it gets really cold, I love to bundle up inside where it’s nice and warm! Sometimes I like to build a cozy fire in my fireplace, but did you know that if you live in Sacramento County you must Check Before You Burn? It’s the law in Sacramento County, including the cities of Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Folsom, Galt, Isleton, Rancho Cordova and Sacramento.

Scooter, the YouTube sensation!

Hi Friends,

By now you know that my job is to teach everyone about the dangers of air pollution and all the ways we can fight it. But, did you also know that I’m a YouTube sensation?! When I’m not out and about in the community, stopping by schools, parks and other awesome events, I like to use my talents to create awesome videos that teach you ways you can help Spare The Air.
