The Air We Grieve

First XR action in Reigate.

We’ve given out flyers and newpapers, but this was definitely more eycatching!

Why: Reigate has 2 Air Quality Management Areas where nitrogen dioxide levels are dangerously high and require monitoring. Reigate and Banstead also have a bad record on carbon dioxide pollution (second worst in Surrey after Guildford) and has the highest number of deaths attributable to air pollution. Bad news.

So on 26th February a good number of rebels walked around the Reigate one-way system making an impact and handing out flyers about the issue. Provoked a lot of positive interest.

And made it into the Surrey Mirror…
