Did you know?
- Indoor air quality is generally two to five times (and in some cases 100 times) more polluted than outdoor air.
- The majority of us spend 90 percent of our lives indoors.
- For Portlanders, this is a major problem: the EPA concluded air pollution in the Portland-metro area put us at the third highest risk of cancer of any metro area in the United States. Only the Los Angeles- and New York City-metro areas were worse.
