How do you clean the air?

Just use an Air Cleaner and Ventilate
"It's just a filter and a fan"
You can even build one yourself!

It's not rocket science

(just normal science)

Don't breathe pollution

Our lungs are only supposed to absorb oxygen into our blood, not pollution.

Household air pollution killed about 3.2 million people in 2020, including over 237,000 children under 5 years old.

Remove the pollution

Air cleaners are designed to suck the polluted air through filters and fill the room with clean air.

Breathing clean air helps prevent sickness. It improves fitness, mental health, and even school performance.

There's a reason we keep getting sick

Indoor air is much more polluted than outdoor air







It’s not just COVID-19 that spreads like smoke

Breathing polluted air causes many illnesses, like flu, chickenpox, asthma, lung cancer, heart disease, and strokes.

The solution is simple: we need to clean the air

but we're still only cleaning surfaces

Cleaning surfaces isn't enough any more.

Washing our hands and cleaning surfaces doesn't stop us breathing in harmful pollution.

Where does the pollution come from anyway?
