June Air Quality Evangelists
Let’s face it: we don’t always have all the answers. Here at Sylvane, we know a lot about appliances that treat indoor environments. We can tell you which dehumidifier or air purifier would work best for your space. But when it comes to the wide world of air quality, we often have to do our own research to stay on top of things.
Where do we look for information? Air Quality Evangelists.
Air Quality Evangelists are bloggers, writers and website owners who demonstrate a passion for clean, healthy air. Their sites contain reliable information about air quality – from personal accounts of living with chemical sensitivities to medical opinions about air treatment appliances. Each month, we feature a few of these Air Quality Evangelists on our blog.
We added a few more to the list!

True to its name, The Air Quality is a blog about clean air and other environmental issues relating to air.
Winning Post: Concrete slabs that draw pollution out of the air are now used in the UK. Noxer concrete absorbs nitrogen oxide from the air, and a titanium layer mixes with sunlight to keep fumes from escaping. Will it last? Maybe. But the fact that it’s an option is exciting, and proof that air purification technology is advancing.
