When you think about vehicle pollution, you might envision smoke leaking from your car’s tailpipe. In reality, not all emissions are visible to the naked eye. Washington Gas is teaming up with Clean Air Partners to help raise awareness about how we can all do our part for a cleaner environment.
The Bubble Car is a vehicle completely encased in clear plastic as puffs of “smoke” vapor, representing vehicle emissions, are emitted from the tailpipe and fill the bubble. Check out the exhibit in action!
Interacting with this unique display is a fun, hands-on reminder that our everyday behaviors have impacts on air quality. And while reducing auto-related emissions is a great start, many other day-to-day choices can help lower pollution, such as using public transit, sharing rides, switching from charcoal to gas or electric grills and maintaining an energy-efficient home.
