THE DANGER OF POOR QUALITY AIR
Children’s lungs are particularly vulnerable to the effects of indoor air pollution and never more so than in their early years.
Pollution damage and hindered development of the lungs can leave children with life-long health problems.
See the blog on the report “Every breath we take: the lifelong impact of air pollution” – Published February 2016 by the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of Paediatricians and Children’s Health.
HEALTHY AIR IS SO IMPORTANT
Indoor air can be over 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, so where lots of kids get together in a playgroup, it’s vitally important to provide plenty of fresh air into the playroom. But even then, you don’t know if the air is truly healthy unless you have visible proof.
For playgroup owners, uHoo “LITE” is the perfect solution to monitor air the kids breathe. It makes the invisible, visible.
uHoo “LITE” shows you the quality of the air in near real time, reassuring you when the air is good and alerting you instantly when it isn’t – for example, are there rising levels of Carbon Dioxide (CO2)? Or Particulate Matter PM2.5? Or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)?….all of which can be commonly found in playgroups.
SHOW PARENTS YOU CARE!
It’s also a brilliant feature to demonstrate the great care you take over the kids’ wellbeing.
And, if you want to, you can even offer parents access to the air quality information via their own smartphones, reassuring them that their children are breathing good air. It makes the invisible, visible.
