Today marks the start of Air Quality Awareness Week, which means this week individuals and communities across the country are encouraged to get involved in activities and events aimed at helping people understand where air pollution comes from, how it affects our health, and why working to improve our country’s air quality is so important. Because toxins in our air can build up in our bodies and contribute to poor health and disease over time, taking steps to reduce our daily exposure is essential. Here are 5 simple tips to help you get started!

  1.  Invest in HEPA Filters: More than 90% of the harmful particulates you want to filter are small enough to be handled by a high-efficiency particle absorption (HEPA) filter. Consider using them in your home, office, and even your vehicle!
  2. Bring a Little Green Indoors: Plants are natural air filters and help filter toxins from your indoor air. Consider spider plants, rubber plants, palm, aloe vera, peace lilies, ferns, ivy and even Gerbera daisies and chrysanthemums for your home and office.
  3. Walk More, Bike More: Motor vehicles account for 75% of carbon monoxide emissions nationwide and roughly half of all smog-forming volatile organic compounds (VOCs), nitrogen oxide emissions, and toxic air pollutant emissions.i At least once a week, consider walking or taking your bike instead of driving.
  4. Herbal Cleansing & Detox: Herbal cleansing and detoxification formulas provide support and nourishment for the body’s natural detoxification organs (the lungs, liver, lymphatic system, kidneys, skin, blood and bowel) to help them filter and eliminate harmful toxins from the body.‡

Get Active! Physical activity stimulates the flow of blood and lymph to further help cleanse the body. If you head outdoors to enjoy the spring weather, be sure to check the Air Quality Index for your local air quality forecast, and avoid activities near busy roads or highways. There’s even a free mobile app!
