Clean Air Is A Human Right
Air is communal, shared by every life on Earth. Air is also very personal, affecting each of us differently. AirPop protects every breath like its your first.
Breathing Security For All
Airborne risks represent the largest invisible threat to global public health and AirPop’s purpose is to provide a protection solution for everyone, everywhere.
Often unseen, air pollution can affect every organ in the human body. Consisting of coarse, fine and ultrafine particles, vehicles, factories, and construction primarily cause air pollution. Climate change also plays a role, with forest fires and dust storms contributing to high concentrations of dust particles.
Indoor Air is full of unseen dangers. Even with high-efficiency filters, volatile organic compounds, fine particles and pathogens can pose a threat. In high-density areas such as public transport, pockets of contaminated air form and pose a threat to our health.
Masks are the best way we can reduce the risk to ourselves and others.
Anyone living in a wildfire-prone area knows the dangers of wildfire smoke. With excessive amounts of fine particulate matter being emitted, smoke from wildfires can cause a range of short and long term health issues. These effects can be exacerbated in at-risk groups, so it’s vital to ensure that you’re protected.
Allergens are not only incredibly irritating but potentially harmful. Most commonly caused by pollens during allergy season, these particles are especially troublesome for anyone with respiratory conditions. Allergen particles range greatly in size, so it’s critical to ensure that you have a capable mask.
Pathogens & Influenza
These tiny organisms are infectious agents accountable for spreading a range of diseases. Most commonly, airborne pathogens take the form of viruses, bacteria or fungi. Viruses such as influenza are widely spread and encountered on a daily basis. Many of these particles can remain airborne indefinitely.
SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19)
Primarily spread by airborne respiratory excretions, COVID-19 is usually spread from the nasal cavity and throat, which is the initial point of infection. While naked SARS‑CoV‑2 virions range from 70-90nm in diameter, the virus rarely travels naked. Rather, it attaches to larger particles that make high-filtration masks extremely effective at filtering the virus.
