Be Air Aware!

Together we can make a difference to improve air quality for everyone in Arizona.

Meet our Arizona Air Quality Mascot — Ari!

Ari's color is linked to the Air Quality Index (AQI) and changes based on the current AQI | Learn More >

When Ari's color is:

  • Green — air quality is good
  • Yellow — air quality is fair
  • Orange — air quality is unhealthy for sensitive groups (such as children and people with asthma)
  • Red — air quality is unhealthy for everyone and outdoor exertion should be limited.
