Who are Colorado Moms Know Best?
Colorado Moms Know Best is a casual network of moms and friends that are looking out for our children’s health and wellbeing by protecting Colorado’s outdoors and quality of life. We will function as mostly an online network, but will occasionally host get-togethers for interested members.
We have chosen air pollution as our first issue. We chose air pollution because of the immediacy of its impact on the lives and health of our families. Important standards on the state level are being formulated through the remainder of this year and we want to ensure our voices will be heard on this critical subject.
After reading the American Lung Association’s recent State of the Air report card on air pollution in Colorado we were shocked to discover Arapahoe, Douglas, Jefferson, and Larimer counties all received F grades for their ozone pollution levels from 2009-2011. Boulder, La Plata, and Weld counties received D grades.
