Air is indispensable for life but clean air is what decides the quality of that life. Born and brought up in one of the greener states of the country, I hardly paid much attention to the air that I breathed in. Reason, I knew it is pure. Though, things are changing in the current scenario. Excessive development is leading to the deterioration of environment and thereby, the air that we breathe in is also declining in quality; it is loaded with pollutants. The vehicles jamming the roads have also started affecting our body systems.
People think staying away from these polluted areas is the best option; that staying indoors might be good for them. But if you think it is safer at home; it isn’t! Our offices, houses, they all contain a large number of pollutants. Thanks to that fancy furniture, paint on the walls, the chemical cleaners, and the room fresheners! They all are adding something undesirable to the environment indoor which can cause several discomforts. This may affect your eyes, nose, throat, and respiratory system etc. And not to forget the cigarette smoke! Long term effects of these pollutants can be fatal. Also, there are unattended corners in the house covered with dust, acting as breeding grounds for mites. Moist points in the kitchen and bathrooms give shelter to moulds, especially in this rainy season. Aren’t they affecting your quality of life; your health?
Air pollution whether outdoor or indoor, is a matter of health concern more particularly in urban areas. However, outer environment is very vast and it needs collective actions, it is easier to improve the environment inside our dwellings. While the concept of indoor pollution is still new in India, BreatheFresh has come up with Air Purifying products specially to clean indoor air. The product which I am talking in particular is- Vayu Natural Air Purifying Bag. You heard it right; it’s not a machine, but just a bag!

Vayu Natural Air Purifying Bag Advanced: My Experience
For me, it was difficult to measure the effectiveness of Vayu bag in reducing the pollutants but I tested its efficiency in my kitchen area. Home with kids see a lot of food wastage. Mine is no exception! Since we don’t have a garbage collecting person here, and I have a super busy schedule, sometimes, I just forget to clear the dustbin. The kitchen stinks! Air-freshener acts as a savior at such times for getting rid of the bad odors around the living spaces but then I realized that it only masks the bad odor by its own strong chemical fragrance. After placing the Vayu bag in Kitchen, I am impressed, honestly. It smells so fresh!
Since I have just one Vayu bag, and I have no plans of relocating it. But this bag can be used at almost any place you can think of, e.g. in the refrigerator, along the books, clothes, in travel bags, in cars, with valuables like camera and even in washroom to remove bad odors and extra moisture leaving the place fresh.
