Improving Air Quality
I’m guessing that one of the reasons you moved to a home in the country, was to escape dirty urban air. You want to breathe better, feel better, and experience better health.
Billions of people in urban and rural areas, use traditional stoves and open fires that are propelled by coal, biomass, and even kerosene. These cooking methods, using polluting stoves, are linked to 4 million premature deaths every year --- per the World Health Organization. This is due to different illnesses brought on by home air pollution.
Home air pollution is also linked to strokes, heart disease, lung cancer, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Living in the countryside should be safer, relaxing, and less polluted. And we want to help you get there.

Example: You can replace non-toxic pesticides or install easy-to-clean hard flooring instead of carpeting. It is also a good idea to change your home’s air filters regularly. Also, consider installing a kitchen ventilation system to lessen emissions. These are some effective ways to lessen emissions.
