Green Dog Walkers During Covid-19

All the events we had planned for this year are on hold while the Covid-19 restrictions are in place. In the meantime we hope you continue to enjoy walking your dog. Among the many benefits is that you will receive a good dose of daily sunshine (weather permitting). There is no doubt that sunshine boosts your body's levels of Vitimin D. There is a growing body of research that indicates that good levels of vitimin D will help reduce your chance of catching Covid-19 and if you do it seems it will reduce the worst effects. 

We hope to continue with the next phase of our efforts to encourage cleaning up after all dogs as soon as we are able. In the meantime thank you for taking the pledge and helping to make our environment better for everyone.

Whittlesey Air Quality

Know what you breathe

Our sensor is located near Whittlesea Railway Station. It accurately measures particulate matter for PM1, PM2.5, and PM10 to give Air Quality Index (AQI) readings based on inhalable particles that are small enough to penetrate deep into the lungs and enter the bloodstream. 

 The results show when particulate matter in the air like pollen, dust, or smoke from nearby fires make it wise to extra care or even stay inside

The air quality from our sensor is show below. The readings are counting how much particulate matter is in the air at our sensor. A low reading means there is less and a high reading shows there is more particulate matter carried in the air.
