While there are many benefits to raising your family in the city, traffic and power plants release harmful nitrogen (NOx) and sulfur (SO2). Existing filters remove only particulate matter while allowing these chemical pollutants to pass freely into the air we breathe.
We developed the first low-profile filter capable of filtering both SO2 and NO2 air pollutants, which have been associated with higher asthma attack rates and 3x-6x higher asthma rates from legal city pollution limits.
We use spectrometers and particulate counters to design and validate the first low-profile filters capable of filtering chemical air pollution. Our team has partnered with physicians to study the impact of our filter on reducing asthma rates and frequency of attacks in children.
Our unique filter can integrate into existing filter systems, be they home filters, cars, or even respirators, to enhance your family’s level of protection from harmful air pollution.
Our filters are proudly made in the USA, with components sources and assembled entirely in New England.
We’re committed to saving lives. A portion of profits goes towards products that reduce childhood deaths from indoor air pollution in developing countries.
Our technology is broadly applicable. While we will expand into products for all settings and stages of life, our principal focus is on improving family health and wellness in the home and office as well as on the road.
While most organs are fully developed at birth, lungs continue to mature between birth and 8 years of age. On top of this, children exchange three times more air per pound of body weight than adults, making them particularly vulnerable to environmental pollutants.
Exposure to chemical air pollutants, which no one else filters, has been shown to increase asthma rates and cause permanent reduced lung function. It has been linked with shorter life expectancy in adults.
As we expand, we will start directing a portion of our profits to subsidizing life-saving products from indoor air pollution in developing countries. Why? Because:
Indoor air pollution arises from cooking over an open fire, creating dense particulate matter (PM) pollution in homes that, when inhaled, can lead to life-threatening pneumonia in infants and young children.
The World Health Organization indicates that 3 billion people worldwide suffer from indoor air pollution. We aren’t competing with other companies in remedying indoor pollution; together we’re fighting a titanic problem.
4 million people die per year from indoor air pollution. 50% of under-age-5 pneumonia deaths worldwide are from indoor pollution. On average, one child dies per minute from air pollution.
Join with us and others as we try to save lives from indoor air pollution. A portion of proceeds go to this important cause.
