Clean Air Month 2022

Take action this Clean Air Month…

Choose to start investing in your indoor space.
To do this you should focus on: ventilation, filtration and purification.
The purpose of Clean Air Month is to create awareness about both indoor and outdoor air pollution, the impact and importance of clean air, the relationship between air quality and respiratory health and how to improve air quality overall.
Air pollution can consist of dirt, dust, gas and other microparticles we may not notice we are breathing in.
A difference in clean air not only benefits human health, it can benefit climate health and environmental health.

Human Health

When it comes to human health, poor air quality can contribute to many health issues.

Clean air can provide many positive benefits such as:

  • Healthy lungs.

  • Reduced chances of life threatening diseases.

  • Fewer respiratory symptoms, such as asthma.

  • Improved concertation.

  • A stronger immune system.

  • Increased energy.


Environmental Health

Environmental health doesn’t necessarily relate to nature. It can apply to any of our surrounding environments such as our infrastructures. For instance, our building materials used in our home or workplace play a huge part in our wellbeing.

Materials such as paints, sprays, carpets, varnishes can all cause air pollutants in the air to disrupt our health. These examples are known as Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC) and are products found in chemicals that then become a gas at room temperature.

Purchasing our Air Quality Monitor is a great way to keep track of all things important for either you and anyone else who shares the space the device is placed within.

This device can measure CO2 TVOC, HCHO, temperature and humidity.





Climate Health

Poor air quality is also a lead factor in climate change. A short lived climate pollutant (SLCP) such as black carbon, is one of the largest contributor to global warming after CO2. This SLCP warms the atmosphere on earth by absorbing sunlight which then speeds up the melting of ice and snow.

Another SLCP such as Methane is another powerful greenhouse gas that is primarily emitted by human activities, such as raising livestock.

There is a direct relationship between outdoor air quality and indoor air quality. The potential health consequences and quality of life impacts are largely the same, even if the pollution sources differ.

Clean air outdoors benefits clean air indoors.
