Sharp UK new resources for schools to reduce air pollution

Sharp UK has launched a new range of digital resources to help teachers and pupils address ways to help reduce air pollution for the benefit of individuals health and the planet. These have been developed to coincide with Action for Clean Air Day and are available to all schools across the UK.

Clean Air Day, an initiative led by Action for Clean Air brings together communities, businesses, schools, and the health sector. Air pollution is the largest environmental health risk in today’s society and this campaign helps raise awareness of the ongoing problems and highlights the steps needed to take to tackle this issue.

According to the World Health Organisation, 88 per cent of schools in the UK have air pollution in breach of the new WHO nitrogen dioxide (NO2) guidelines, and 95 per cent are in breach of the new WHO PM2.5 guideline.

The resources from Sharp UK emphasise the changes an individual needs to make to help address the issues as well as information on what technology is available to help such as Sharp’s own Plasmacluster technology, which is specifically designed to maintain clean and healthy air in the home, schools, and offices.

Kerry Rush, Product Manager from Sharp UK said, “air pollution is an increasing concern for us individually and as a nation and we fully support Clean Air Day in its aim to mobilise and enable people and organisations to act on air pollution and ensure their voice is heard. The resources are designed to increase knowledge in the classroom and show what changes can be made and the role that technology can play.”

The resources in the digital packs provided by Sharp UK include; posters, leaflets, bunting, Official Clean Air Day Teaching Resources, and an Air Purification Information Pack.

Sharp’s Plasmacluster technology generates the same positive and negative ions that are present in naturally fresh air, providing businesses, schools and homes with cleaner and safer air.

The efficiency of Plasmacluster devices ensures that dust and harmful particles are pushed through a triple filtration system, absorbing odor’s, then the HEPA filter removes almost 100 per cent (99.97%) of particulate matter such as pollen, allergens, viruses, mould, and bacteria. The humidification system ensures the room's humidity is at an optimum level to avoid dry air which increases the speed of virus and bacterial growth.
