Our main solution is to use an air purifier that will clean up the particulate matter in the air surrounding the Stockton campus. This uses solar panels to cut electricity costs, and wind turbines that will save us on the costs of energy needed. Our method would save us money in the long run because the money we are going to use will be paid for by the decrease in spending for medical costs in the future.

This cause is important since students spend most of their time on campus, around cars and car emissions. This issue affects students and faculty who are constantly around the air pollutants emitted by cars.
