Healthy Air For Healthy Minds

Indoor air pollution is a major environmental and public health challenge1, contributing to more than 7 million premature deaths each year2. However, with increased understanding of the health risks, reduced mental acuity, and student absenteeism linked to poor indoor air quality, university and college students need crucial access to clean indoor air that is safe to breathe.

We Share Clean Air

Welcome to the family

We’re spending more time inside, but instead of being safe from pollutants, we’re more exposed than ever. Indoor air is on average two to five times more polluted than the air outside7 — yet despite greater awareness of airborne diseases, we continue to share the same contaminated air.

Embrace clean air technology and bring fresh air back inside and join the community that is committed to turning the tables on poor indoor air.
