Many people take clean air for granted, but legislators in Wisconsin recently celebrated Clean Air Month to raise awareness of the benefits. Officials across the state have begun recognizing the month, which was designated as May, in an effort to make residents more conscious of their carbon footprints.
Wisconsin has seen an admirable amount of success since the Clean Air Act was amended in 1990, according to the Ashland Current. All 11 southeastern Wisconsin counties now meet the one-hour ozone level standard created by the federal government.
"Cleaner air is a tremendous benefit to families, businesses and government," Cathy Stepp, Department of Natural Resources Secretary, told the news source. "Our clean air and water are one of the reasons businesses and families want to be in Wisconsin and an important component of the high quality of life we enjoy here."
Individuals who want to keep their living spaces pollution-free may want to consider purchasing an air purifier, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus.
The IQAir HealthPro Plus has a HyperHEPA filter designed to trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size. This includes dust, pollen and pet dander, all of which can cause allergic reactions.
