Improve your Car Air (taken from Asthma UK)

…..Read this on FB. I am a member of Asthma UK so I am happily passing this info on to you here. Seems a good way to improve your car air if you haven’t got all the extra filters, like we have!…..

Asthma UK and Corteco, one of Asthma UK’s corporate partners, have embarked on a campaign to raise awareness of the effect air pollutants have on asthma. Corteco produces filters for cars which filter the air coming in from the outside, and as 66% of people with asthma tell us that traffic fumes make their asthma worse this is something that could potentially offer some relief. A poster has been produced, which will be displayed in 35,000 garages across the country, outlining the potential effect air pollution has on asthma, and directing people to call the Asthma UK Adviceline if they have any concerns about their asthma.

‘Pollen is easy to stop,’ says Steve Jarnet, Corteco’s Sales and Marketing Manager.

‘Far more difficult to catch are the smaller particles of pollutants such as diesel particulates and brake dust. Incredibly, pollution is greater inside your car than out, so you have to be adequately protected.’

It is this essential health message that led Corteco to form a relationship with Asthma UK. Together, we organised an event in a supermarket car park where Corteco offered to change cabin air filters for free. The day proved to be a great success and an ideal platform to educate motorists in the importance of having a fully functioning cabin air filter and the potential benefit this could have on their asthma.

If you are interested in buying a cabin air filter for your car go to where you will be able to enter your details to find your nearest stockists. For every air filter sold in this way between 8 and 22 August Corteco will donate £1 to Asthma UK.

……And if I needed car filtersI would definitely be looking into these as I can definitely say, my Merc has THE best air (3 filters) and we now have them in the house in our Air Con system too…..

    More pollution inside the car than outside? I didn’t know that, but I guess it makes sense. I don’t have a car tho. I wonder how much pollution there is on a bus.

    Different topic, but did you see the video I put up about my Boten? This was a couple weeks ago when I still thought she was male (and hence was talking male conjugation to her. Oops.)

    I hope things in London are settling down. Are they?

  2. …Yes-just seen it-hilarious and yes-much calmer here-beginning to rain hope that gets the louts off the streets! x
