The face mask to keep your kids' safe from pollution
The air pollution in China is no longer a shocking news as it has become a daily ‘essential’. Taking the pollution under the control is not an easy job to be done in a short term period. So what we could do now is to face the problem and find ways to minimal the harm of air pollutions would do to our bodies.
For those parents especially, our kids’ health comes to the first priority. We notice the ingredients of the food they eat, select safe fabric clothes for them to wear, and surely we care about the air pollution which we seek ways to reduce having this bad air into our kids' lungs.
However, China is not the only country fighting against this headache pollution problem. Last year Britain's High Court ruled that UK government measures to combat air pollution were failing to comply with European Union rules on nitrogen dioxide limits. Regard to this issue, a London-based designer Tiaan Trahms has developed pollution-busting face masks to protect children from the English capital city's toxic air. According to Trahms, the cotton masks act as a barrier against harmful pollutants. Doodle Masks are made with two separated layers of cotton and the woven fabric has been scientifically proven to reduce between 40 to 60 per cent of these particle intakes. The masks come in colourful designs, such as Disney film themes, which are specially designed for kids. They are available to purchase online for £7.50 each mask.
Apart from the masks, there are also other tools to help you deal with the air pollution. Having an air purifier at home protect the whole family from bad quality air. For example, this fantastic air purifier from Xiaomi is able to reduce 99.7 percent PM 2.5 particles after just one hour of use. You can control the filter (turn it up, down or off) through an app on your phone, which tells you the air quality both inside and outside the house. Also, this app called China Air Quality Index works a pollution monitor that tells you the AQI levels in your area. So that you can prepare yourself and your kids beforehand to deal with the bad air.
And… That’s it!
