Fresh air for young minds
Our children spend a lot of time at school. We want our little ones to learn in environments that are not only healthy but also conducive to learning. To do this, we must ensure that all the carcinogens are removed from classroom air and that carbon dioxide levels are kept to a minimum. Recent Harvard Medical School studies show that lower CO2 when combined with lower pollutants improves cognitive scores by as much as 101%.
Keeping kids safe at AES
Teachers and parents at the American Embassy School were concerned about air quality inside the school, which also serves as a community hub for many foreign families living in Delhi. In 2015, BreatheEasy engineered and installed a centralised solution that brings clean, fresh air into every classroom as well as the gymnasium and shared spaces throughout the school. Now the particulate matter is typically near zero indoors, even when the outside air is in the unhealthy-to-hazardous range. The students are allow to focus on what matters: learning, socializing, and growth.
The principal of our CEO’s daughter’s school was asthmatic. One day our CEO bumped into her at the mall, finding her sitting to catch her breath. When he learned she had asthma, he offered to put an air purifier and some plants in her bedroom to help improve the air quality. She was skeptical, but willing to give it a try. We installed eight sansevieria plants and one SHARP A80 air purifier in her 220-square foot room in Gurgaon. She survived the entire winter without an asthma attack and without needing steroids – for the first time ever. This success motivated our CEO to help other people with clean air solutions for their homes. To learn more, watch this video:
