Enjoy a clean getaway

To mark Clean Air Day on June 20th, Octopus expert Charlie and automotive, lifestyle content creator TGE set off in the ORA 03 for an emission-free road trip.

On top of showing just how easy it is to drive EV and recharge, we set the challenge to highlight key holiday destinations on the South Coast. Because if you stay in the UK for your summer breaks, you’ll be cutting your carbon footprint too.

Wait, what is clean air day?

Put simply, it’s the UK’s largest air pollution campaign. Establishedin 2017, it’s the brainchild of environmental charity Global Action Plan. It exists because sadly, 43,000 deaths in the UK, every year are linked to air pollution. It’s a shocking fact but the initiative is about inspiring positive change.

Why does it matter?

  • Focuses our attention on air pollution
  • Educates public about risks
  • Inspires pollution-busting behaviours
  • Encourages people in power to make changes
  • Gives us hope for a cleaner future
