Filtrex supports National Clean Air Day

The UK has been highlighted as one of the countries who have continuously overstepped the legal levels of nitrogen dioxide created by pollution, generated from factories and vehicles, ignoring clean air support.

Prior to the general election last Thursday 8 June, the government were urged to publish its draft plan to reduce nitrogen dioxide levels in the UK following hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of fines for not complying with EU air pollution limits.

The government are finalising the consultation to reduce nitrogen dioxide in our towns and cities today, which coincidently co-insides with Global Action Plan (an environmental change charity), National Clean Air Day that is dedicated to act on air pollution and is supported by over 50 health institutions, councils and universities including Royal College of Physicians, British Lung Foundation and various NHS trusts.

Pollution is often something that is considered as only outside, however what is outside certain invites itself in as demonstrated in an article we wrote earlier in the year on indoor air quality – Out of Site, Out of Mind.  With us spending 90% of time indoors, the importance of ensuring air is filtered to the correct standards is essential.  This will remove not only the particulate in the air but the gases including nitrogen dioxide.

Filtrex aim to help improve the working environment and protect the natural environment, therefore to help raise awareness and support National Clean Air Day today by offering the chance to win an air purifier (Air purifiers assist in removing odours, chemicals, airbourne dust and allergic particles – all of which can be enhanced by pollution), ideal for office use.

“25% of all our car journeys in the UK are under two miles.  If all car journeys were walked instead it would save £15m in fuel and the population would burn an additional 3.6 calories.  If driving is essential, remembering to switch off the engine when stopped has been shown to cut peaks in pollution.”
