Salt Lake has some of the worst air quality in the nation due to a natural phenomenon in the Salt Lake Valley called inversion. While we can't control the inversion, we can control the pollution that gets put into the air. We believe that electric transportation plays a big part in reducing the amount of pollution that get's released into the air and trapped in the valley.
The Deseret News was there to report on the companies that participated in Salt Lake County's Love Clean Air Fair held appropriately on Valentine's Day, 2017.
Griffen Jorgensen and Robert Paupard sell vegetables they've grown and harvested at the Salt Lake County Jail during the third annual Clean Air Fair at the Salt Lake County Government Center in Salt Lake City on Tuesday. The event, sponsored by the county's sustainability office, included vendors such as Blue Monkey Bicycles, and Aperion Solar, as well as several county agencies including the Health Department’s Vehicle Repair Assistance Program, Library Services and the Jail Horticulture Program. According to Ashlee Yoder, the county's sustainability manager, the event aimed to give people the tools to help them make informed decisions about improving the valley's air quality.
