Extra Protection - For Going Back To School

 Brick and mortar, online virtual, distance learning, or pod-based homeschooling are just a few of the decisions parents are struggling with in today’s pandemic environment. Let’s face it, back to school this year isn’t coming with the usual conversations about what to wear or whose backpack is best. Instead, there is a whole host of dialogue about how to keep the family safe and healthy while also ensuring that the kids are receiving a quality education. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advocates that children learn best when they are in a classroom environment. And while many parents agree with that statement, the decision to send kids back to class is not that simple this year. Parents who have made the decision to send their kids back to school are eager to find additional ways to protect our children as that first day of school approaches. 

In an effort to ease fears, most school districts and national organizations have guidelines in place for social distancing and face coverings, regular cleaning and disinfecting, as well as creating hybrid in-class/online options in an effort to minimize the number of students in the classroom at any given time. These plans are all fluid and are still constantly being adapted as new information comes to light. 

In addition to following these and other measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), GreenTech Environmental is proud to feature several products that can enhance your healthy practices. 

NEW pureAir SOLO is a sleek, wearable air purifier that creates a safe personal breathing zone by actively repelling particles from the breathing space. 

Using ion-based active air technology, pureAir SOLO creates a 4 ft. clean-air zone, or bubble, reducing exposure to pathogens like bacteria and viruses, allergens, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that include harmful chemicals. pureAir SOLO delivers all-day protection with a rechargeable battery that lasts over 24 hours per charge. It’s so light and incredibly quiet, your kids are likely to forget that they are even wearing it! And, for extra fun, pureAir SOLO is easy to personalize with your favorite stickers or other bedazzling options!

pureAir SOLO is the newest GreenTech Environmental product, but there are many other pureAir products that use the same technology developed and used by NASA, and they can improve the quality of the air you are breathing in all kinds of indoor environments.

Traditional air filters are passive, requiring all of the air in the room to go through the filter to be cleaned. Oftentimes, particles such as bacteria and viruses are too small to be trapped, or they move too quickly past UV lamps or heating elements to be destroyed. 

Our proprietary active air purification is different. Powerful advanced oxidation products, or AOPs, are propelled out into your space to hunt down contaminants, even the very small ones, and destroy them, not just in the air, but on surfaces as well. At the same time, ions charge harmful particulates, causing them to clump together and drop out of the breathing space. The result is the significant reduction of odors, bacteria, viruses, mold, allergens, volatile organic compounds, and more.  

And speaking of back to school, at GreenTech we have noticed several school districts purchasing our active air purifiers for the classroom as an extra measure of protection for students, teachers, and staff. Some of the most popular items would make excellent back to school gifts for the teacher, such as pureAir 3000 or pureAir 500. If you are interested in learning more about how these products work, please contact us.

It’s true, we are all doing so much to keep ourselves and our families healthy during this unprecedented school season. At GreenTech, we are proud to offer products that assist in the fight to improve the quality of the air we are breathing and to help keep each other safe! With pureAir SOLO, and other products from our pureAir family, you can live your life with an air of confidence!
