Air Quality Evangelists Badge

When it comes to creating a safe and healthy indoor environment, the more you know, the better. However, sometimes online research can lead to an overwhelming amount of options.

That’s why we created the Air Quality Evangelist project!

Each month, we will scour the web for the best blogs and websites you can confidently add to your list of air treatment resources. These sites may focus on allergies, asthma, green living, air quality, anything – most importantly, they have a deep appreciation for breathing clean and healthy air. At the end of the month, we will choose our top picks and name a few Air Quality Evangelists.

An Air Quality Evangelist is someone who appreciates the importance of healthy indoor air and celebrates products and lifestyle choices that can help improve the quality of the air you breathe. Air Quality Evangelist blogs are invited to sport the Air Quality Evangelist badge so you can spot them easily.

Here are the first 5 Air Quality Evangelists!
