InstaVolt supports National Clean Air Day

7th June 2017

InstaVolt supports National Clean Air Day.

As one of the UK’s leading authorities in electric vehicle charging, InstaVolt is supporting the first ever National Clean Air Day on 15th June.

National Clean Air Day (NCAD) will see local schools, hospitals, workplaces and communities across UK cities run events, and inspire local residents to act for their own health and the health of local children.

Air pollution increases the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and asthma attacks, as well as being associated with dementia. The health burden of air pollution is completely unnecessary and NCAD is all about giving everyone the tools and inspiration to reduce pollution now.

InstaVolt is supporting the day by raising awareness of how electric vehicles can help to drive down air pollution. The company is passionate about protecting the environment and improving air quality. It believes that by making the UK an easier place to recharge, it will encourage more people to drive electric vehicles and lead to better air quality for all.

CEO Tim Payne said: “We wholeheartedly support the first ever National Clean Air Day. Air pollution is one of the biggest health risks in the UK and it’s been linked to everything from asthma to heart disease.

“Making a move away from fossil fuels and towards electric vehicles will play a key part in reducing contributors to air pollution and improving air quality in the UK.”

15th June will be a day of practical action, myth-busting and awareness-raising. NCAD will give every school, hospital, workplace and housing estate free access to cutting-edge advice on avoiding and tackling urban air pollution, approved by health experts and academics.
