Images of clean air and healthy lungs

BREATHE's Annual Clean Air Awards

At Breathe California of Sacramento-Emigrant Trails (BREATHE), we know how much the quality of the air we breathe impacts the lung health and general well-being of everyone in our community. Unfortunately, the Sacramento region consistently ranks as one of the most polluted metropolitan areas in the country - but there is a silver lining!

Our air quality is slowly, but steadily improving thanks to the focused and determined efforts of our Clean Air Champions - the people, businesses and organizations who not only recognize the importance of having cleaner air to breathe, but also go above and beyond expectations to achieve it.

Each year we collect online nominations from throughout our region, which are formally reviewed by our esteemed Blue Ribbon Panel.

The nomination period for the 2014 Clean Air Awards closed on January 31st. All entries were thoroughly reviewed in March, and the winners were formally recognized at the 2014 Clean Air Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, May 28th. For more information, contact Jana Greenberg at (916) 444-5900 ext 217 or
