WELLBEING & DESIGN
We can choose what we want to listen to, look at or eat, but can we choose the air we breathe?
The consumption of fossil fuels, waste treatment, and the use of pesticides mean that 99% of the population live in polluted areas and according to WHO, more than three billion people are breathing unhealthy air in their own homes.
The most polluted country is Bangladesh, followed by Chad, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and India. Atmospheric pollution, the third cause of death after high blood pressure and smoking, is present all over the planet, leading to millions of deaths.
