The Clean Air Consumer Guide  is an informative resource on shopping for products that protect our air. A hard copy of this guide is also available at Peterborough Green-Up, lower level Peterborough Square.

For practical information and factsheets on how to reduce vehicle use through walking, cycling, busing and carpooling, visit Peterborough Green-Up’s Peterborough Moves.
