Turn your school into a Pure Air Zone
Let your students and teachers breathe pure fresh mountain air and increase enrolment & retention
Finally the solution to the Health and Environment Alliance's call!
Let's revolutionise the way we breathe starting from our children
Growing in a healthy and stimulating environment
Studies have shown that air pollution affects a child's learning abilities as well as their heart, brain and nervous system development.
There are varying concentrations of unhealthy pollutants inside & outside classrooms where children spend most of their day
To prevent drowsiness, loss of concentration, and decreased productivity it is important to clean the surrounding environment.
We all want our children to learn well and develop healthily
Becoming a Pure Air School means
Higher Enrolment & Retention
Pure Air Zones = Healthier People
Enhanced Concentration & Development
Having a forest in a box (273 trees)
Promoting a healthy environment where to learn will increase pupils enrolment & retention as well as teachers' and staff's wellbeing.
Studies have shown that air pollution causes drowsiness, hinders pupil development and damages the brain. Having a Pure Air School will immediately increase concentration and development.
Having Pure Air Zones inside schools around the city will benefit the entire community! People will start breathing cleaner air and start feeling better & happier.
Each U-Earth 70 unit has a pollutant destructive capacity of 273 trees. This means that each classroom will literally have a forest in a box!
