DID YOU KNOW..?
Air is one of our most basic needs, yet it is often not as clean as it should be.
When people think about air pollution, they usually think about traffic-related air pollution. “Smog.”
In early 2020, many Australians also considered smoke due to the horrendous fires that we started the year with.
This is all pretty much about outdoor air (ambient air).
