what's in the air we breathe?

On average, we breathe 6 liters every minute, mainly indoors. Indoor air quality is often worse than outdoor air which underscores our need for cleaner air and safer spaces. Our air is made up of microparticles such as dust, pollen, mold, viruses, pet dander, and VOCs. These particles can enter our bloodstream through our lungs after we inhale them. The air we breathe impacts our daily and long-term well-being and health. Follow us at Air Support Project. We want you to know better so you can breathe better.

About Us

We want to educate people about indoor air quality (IAQ) and give them the tools for cleaner indoor air and safer spaces. Improving air quality is a crucial endeavor that benefits all of humankind. We welcome collaboration and are open to sharing our work with others to further the mission. While the DIY community has made great strides in sharing designs and popularizing homemade air purifiers, the time has come for a low-cost, easy-to-assemble, complete high-performance air purifier to be available for purchase. That is our mission in the Air Support Project. In the spirit of the DIY community, we plan to open-source the hardware design.
