Back to School with Scooter

Scooter_Scooter_Post-01

I hope you are as excited to go back to school as I am! There are lots of things you can do this school year to help Spare The Air, including:

  • Bring a refillable water bottle every day to school 
  • Recycle your paper, plastic, and cans
  • Reuse your backpack from last year
  • Ride a bike, skateboard, scooter (my favorite) or walk to school
  • Ride the school bus or share a ride to school with a neighbor or friend

Helping Spare The Air is important for our health and for our environment. When you’re a kid, your lungs are still developing, and breathing poor air quality can damage them. Have a grown-up download the Sacramento Region Air Quality app on their phone to receive notifications when the air quality is poor and help you avoid the harmful effects of air pollution. Tell your teachers what you have learned from Scooter’s World and share these awesome Spare The Air games and activities with them by clicking here:  http://www.aqmdscooter.com/index.php/activities/
