Paper, pen, or computer
- Develop writing skills while making a difference for clean air.
- Pick a person: Decide to whom you want to write a clean air letter. It could be the president of a business that you are interested in, or your mayor or U.S. Representative.
- Write the letter: For suggestions on writing format, see sample letter. Begin your letter with a brief introduction. State your name and age. Explain why you are writing the letter.
- Writing to a specific company: Ask what the company is doing to help reduce pollution and give suggestions on how and what you think it can do to make a change to reduce pollution.
- Writing to an elected official (like your city mayor or state governor): In the second paragraph, ask what he or she is doing to control air pollution. Then give suggestions for laws and policies that control air pollution or encourage people to reduce air pollution.
- Sign the letter and send it!
- Have any of you written a letter to make a change before? If so, did you receive a response?
- What do you hope will come from you writing a letter?
- Who else will you write a letter to?
