            Many factors affect the quality of the air in Fairfax County. The Washington region is considered a single unit in the eyes of EPA, so if one jurisdiction does not meet air quality standards, the entire region fails. In addition, the region is the "beneficiary" of polluted air originating outside the area. Fairfax County is striving to improve its air quality with a number of programs and actions. Get the latest information from our speakers, and ask them questions to enhance your knowledge of this important topic.

            Note: You may bring flyers on your organization's events and activities. There will be a time for announcements.

            If you have friends or associates who would like to receive notices about the Green Breakfasts, events and environmental issues, please provide their e-mail addresses.
