An avalanche in the number of automobiles and the rapid industrialization has led to the rise of air pollution. This menace has grown to such an extent that the need to oust it from the environment has become imminent. Combating air pollution outside sounds like a herculean task, but surely, we can avoid becoming a prey to harmful diseases caused by air pollution and the pollutants by installing air purification systems in our homes. Home is one place where you would not want to compromise.
There are numerous ways of having a safe home that is devoid of air pollution. We shall have a look at some astounding eco-friendly air purification systems available to keep our homes cleaner:
1. GreenAir Natural Air Purifier
Designed by Sherly Gunawan of LASALLE College of the Arts Singapore, the GreenAir Natural Air Purifier, also known as GreenAir, helps clean the environment through natureâs own resources â the natural vegetation. Green plants purify air and have been proved very effective in cleaning air. Based on this, GreenAir uses activated carbon in the plant root area that helps in absorbing contamination in the air through aerial parts of the plant. The purifier uses a solar panel to power a fan that propels air to the zone that contains roots and directs it out, helping the plant absorb a large amount of pollutants in the air. A nylon thread at the base keeps the soil moist, so you do not need to water it.
2. Paralda Air purifier
It is a highly efficient air purifier that provides an air cleaning efficiency of 99.997 percent by utilizing only 55-Watts power. Developed by the Alen Corporation, the Paralda air purifier is a sleek air purification model that is devoid of lead and is Energy Star qualified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. It cleans the toxic particles in the air that cause diseases like cold, cough, allergies and affect the respiratory system.
Paralda Air Purifier has four-speed air purifiers that come with an efficient HEPA filtration system, a UV lamp that claims durability with a life of 5 years, an ionizer that clogs toxic particles and dust, light touch activation controls and a timer that lets you program the purifier comfortably.

5. Wearable Air Purifier
This is exactly what we wanted to emphasize on when we said that it is almost impossible to breathe clean air outside our homes. Martina Pagura and Pedro Nakazato Andrade along with Dadiid Gauthier, Priya Mani, and Di Mainstone worked on an air purifier that could be carried along and worn by people outside. It lead to the creation of the wearable air purifier that is a self-energy producing unit that traps carbon dioxide from the air and uses it to generate energy to function. The air purifier can be worn on the face. It filters the air and alarms the user when it detects polluted air. The user can, therefore, close the unit to protect himself.
