Utah's bad air affects us all, but together, we can make a difference. Here at O₂ Utah, we are working hard to elect climate champions and pass meaningful policy to ensure a healthier future, but we can't do it without your generous support.
A donation of any amount goes directly to our time in the community and at the Capitol as we fight for clean air.
For our inaugural Donor Spotlight, we are pleased to highlight Karsten Gillwald from Salt Lake City. Karsten works for the Utah Department of Health and is a climate champion!
Let's get to know Karsten a bit more.
What do you love about Utah?
I love Utah for the access to the outdoors. Hiking, skiing, camping, etc. are all easy to enjoy since Utah makes it so convenient.
How does Utah's poor air quality affect you?
On the days the air quality is poor, it really limits how I'm able to enjoy my active hobbies. Why would I want to go for a run or a hike when it's going to do more damage to my lungs?
Why is it important to you to support O₂ Utah?
I wanted to donate to O₂ Utah since they're actively working with the decision makers to influence a positive change for Utahns.
