We’re taking part in Clean Air Day on 17th June, to raise awareness on the effects of poor air pollution and the importance of improving air quality, this year, the theme focuses on improving children’s health.
Clean Air Day is the UK’s largest Air Pollution Day, led by Global Action Plan. The day includes thousands of people getting involved in schools, businesses, the health sector, and communities to raise awareness and improve public understanding of air pollution. Last year’s Clean Air Day saw over 200 events take place across the UK.
The Clean Air Day campaign aims solely to raise awareness and increase understanding of the health effects caused by poor air pollution and highlighting easy actions that can be taken to tackle air pollution.
how we’re getting involved:
We’re working with a local school In Worcestershire to provide them with an indoor air quality monitor which can be used within any aspect of the indoor environment in the school, to monitor the air and identify any potentially harmful pollutants within
the immediate environment.
The Airgloss ProSense air quality monitor we are providing will detect pollutants and environmental factors such as, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and methane.
This will help to educate, increase understanding, and provide data that can be acted upon to improve air quality if necessary.

why we’re getting involved:
Raising awareness of the effects of poor air pollution is important to us, there can be harmful pollutants in the air we breathe, which can negatively affect our health. We want to focus on the importance of improving air quality within our environments in our buildings and workplaces.
Air pollution is the largest environmental health risk we currently face, causing up to 36,000 deaths a year in the UK. Poor air quality also has negative health effects such as lung disease, worsening asthma and can also cause other health issues when in an environment with poor air quality such as, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.
Improved indoor air quality, particularly within schools can help to make it a more appealing place to work and study within, improve concentration within the classroom and can contribute to happier students, reducing stress and improving mental health.
“We’re involved in Clean Air Day as we want to help increase awareness and understanding of poor indoor air quality”
Working with a local school in our community is a step towards focusing on the health effects of air pollution on children and increase awareness to improve and understand indoor air quality.
