UK environmental innovation company Evergen is launching a campaign that will help UK schools raise the money they need to install air purification systems; giving pupils clean air to breathe during their time at work and play.

The Evergen “Clean Air for Kids” campaign puts potential sponsors in touch with the head teachers of schools that are looking to raise the money they need clean air at the school and who have registered their interest with Evergen.

Free air monitoring

Schools that register with Evergen will receive a free ‘air pollution survey’ which is carried out by the company to monitor the air quality both inside and outside of the building. As part of the arrangement, Evergen will also well as set up a test environment and run trials that will provide the schools with ‘before and after’ data from an independent provider.

Once a school’s air has been monitored, Evergen will work closely with the head teachers, governors and stakeholders to identify the equipment needed to reduce air pollution throughout the school. The company will then help find potential sponsors to raise the required funds, through publicity and by directly approaching local and corporate businesses for donations.

All donations are made directly to the school and the school has complete autonomy of how the money is spent and how.

Clean air for every child

Sukhbir Sidhu, founder and director of Evergen says: “Poor air quality is an immense problem for everyone – especially children who live and study in inner-cities. According to the World Health Organisation, 92% of city dwellers breathe polluted air every day.

“With many inner city schools residing next to busy roads and polluting businesses, children are exposed to particles that could end up being harmful to their health

“With our ‘Clean Air for Kids’ campaign, we are doing something about it. Not only has Evergen invested significant time and investment in developing state-of-the-art technology to clean air, we are also offering to raise awareness for the cause and spend company time finding sponsors on the school’s behalf.

“Our vision is that every school child should breathe clean air during their time at school.”

About the technology

Children spend up to eight hours per day indoors. Evergen provides the solutions that improve indoor air quality by over 95%.

However, Evergen technology also goes a step further. It has developed and tested outdoor ‘CleanAirZones’ for playgrounds.

Cleaning outdoor air?

We all know that cleaning vast expanses of outdoor air is impossible.

So, instead of taking on the unthinkable, Evergen provides the services and systems required to create ‘microenvironments’ of clean air.

Evergen systems can clean air in classrooms, communal areas and even in the school yard, giving children even in inner-city areas the clean air they rightfully deserve.

Clean Air Projects in Progress

Evergen’s Clean Air for Kids initiative is designed to bring everyone together including school governors, teachers, parents, local businesses, communities and corporations – as well as the schools kids themselves.

It has just completed a successful installation at St Peters school in Belgravia, which saw a drop of x% in particulate matter since air purification units were installed in the main hall.

The company is also monitoring air at Soho Parish School and Hillcrest School in Bristol.
