Clean Air Night

Lighting fires in our homes is the largest source of harmful small particle air pollution in the UK. This type of air pollution can cause life-threatening illnesses, including heart and lung disease, making it crucial that we raise awareness about this growing issue. Wood burning not only harms your health, but also your wallet and the planet.

Pressures on household finances or desires to be more eco-friendly may tempt people to burn wood, but research actually shows that wood burning produces more CO2 than oil or gas and is almost always more expensive than other forms of heating. The first-ever Clean Air Night is taking place on 24 January 2024.
