Clean Air Night - Wednesday 24 January 2024


Did you know that lighting fires in our homes is the largest source of harmful small particle air pollution in the UK? This type of air pollution can cause life-threatening illnesses, including heart and lung disease, making it crucial that we are all aware of  this growing issue.


Wood burning not only harms your health, but also your wallet and the planet. Pressures on household finances or desires to be more eco-friendly may tempt people to burn wood, but research actually shows that wood burning produces more CO2 than oil or gas and is almost always more expensive than other forms of heating.



That’s why the first-ever Clean Air Night is taking place on 24 January 2024, to shine a light on the uncomfortable truth about wood burning.



We are supporting this important new campaign, because we have committed to a thriving and sustainable Public Protection Partnership, one that prioritises the health of our community and our planet.



This Clean Air Night, learn more about wood burning and help protect yourself and your community. Visit the Clean Air Hub to find out more.
