Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

We all know that living in the city and even in some sprawling towns has become a dangerous proposition in terms of health risks due to pollution and, in spite of all the efforts done to mitigate it or address it through clean-air laws, the fight has not been quite successful in many regions.

About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

The best that the individual can do is to take some simple steps to minimize the aggravation that pollution brings, steps which can be easily done or resorted to at minimal or no cost at all.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

We all know that staying inside an air-conditioned vehicle does not remove the risk of breathing polluted air.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

2. Use ionizers or other dust-and-pollution-reducing gadgets An ionizer creates a less-polluted indoor condition by electrically charging dusts and aerosols and allowing them to attract to one another and settling down, thus, reducing the amount of pollutants in the air. The secret is to sweep or vacuum the dust that has fallen in order that it does not return into the atmosphere or accumulate in beds, furniture, curtains and other fixtures. Filters for air-conditioners can also help to reduce the pollution as long as they are regularly maintained or replaced.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

3. Utilize inexpensive means to minimize exposure to pollution while preserving your comfort Using air-conditioners, particularly at home, can be a very expensive proposition. Condos can become heat sinks if they face the east or the west and catch solar energy at least three or four hours daily. Most dwellers would normally use air-conditioners to fend off the heat. While using air-conditioners may be a good way of keeping much of the heat and city pollution out; an ordinary electric fan can also do the same trick particularly at night when it is cooler. An air-curtain will serve to keep the dust and pollution from reaching your room just as an exhaust fan throws away hot air inside a room. You can even save by using one electric fan as a portable air-curtain by simply aiming it toward an open window during times when your aircon is off.

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

5. Learn to breathe properly One of the most neglected steps in reducing the effects of pollution is proper breathing. Surprisingly, majority of people do not know how to do this while the ancient Chinese learned the technique of proper breathing for health as well as martial arts purposes thousands of years ago.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

Here is the basic procedure: One, inhale deeply for four seconds in order to supply the lungs with as much oxygen as you can. Two, hold the air inside for six seconds to allow the oxygen to reach as many lung cells as it can. Three, exhale for eight seconds in order expel as much carbon dioxide and, perhaps, other toxic gases you may have in your lungs. Ironically, smokers can gain as much good from this as non-smokers because the last step allows them to expel more toxic gases out of their lungs than those who do not.
