Compact Air Purifier - How Convenient is It?

in Air

Compact air purifiers are becoming a big trend. It has been proven that our indoor air quality is up to five times worse than our outdoor air. I don't know about you but I found this fairly shocking. I knew that indoor air could be full of pollutants but I really thought that with all of the vehicle and factory pollution that the outdoors could be much worse. With a little research I learned otherwise. A compact air purifier that can be used in a vehicle and taken anywhere is an excellent accessory to have. Your lungs will thank you and you will find yourself to be a much healthier person.
