“Man, I am suffocating! The outdoor air has become so polluted! Uff! I was much better indoors…”
That’s something we all repeat, every time we have to go out or travel for some work…
The outdoor air is polluted, and there’s no doubt about it! Exhaust from vehicles, smoke from factories and decomposing waste in the road side dumps… One can clearly imagine the pathetic scenario! 🙁
But how fresh is the indoor air, that we so reliably breathe in?
Research shows that indoor air can be as polluted as the outdoor air, if not more!!! [According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air can be anywhere from two to five times as polluted as the outdoor air, especially in the cities!]
The air trapped inside our rooms and homes is not just the ‘already polluted’ outside air that has been making its way inside via doors, windows and ventilators but it is the air that is further spiked with smoke and chemicals released from smoking, cooking, combustion, varnishes, paints, floor-cleaning products and many other regular housekeeping items!
The effects of indoor air pollution are not easily or distinguishably noticeable… But if left unattended, it gradually starts deteriorating the quality of life and may even cause asthma, lung disorders, irritation pneumonia, allergies, chronic respiratory diseases and even cancer to the people residing there!
Now, we all know that it’s hard, really hard to curb the air pollution indoors, because it’s almost impossible for us to NOT cook or light candles or paint our doors and windows or clean our floors and most importantly, to stop the outdoor air pollutants from seeping in… But that doesn’t mean we can let ourselves and our loved ones suffer! Right?
And so, the search for a good, effective, handy and environment-friendly air purifier begins…
Today, I am going to talk about an air purifier that is completely natural (yes, you heard it right!), biodegradable, non-toxic and claims to naturally remove odors, airborne chemicals, bacteria and toxins, absorb excess moisture, prevent mildew and hence purify air! Sounds promising, isn’t it? 😀
I am talking about the Vayu Natural Air Purifying Bag from BreatheFresh! ❤

WHERE TO BUY?
One thing that instantly caught my attention, when I first opened the package, was that the Vayu Natural Air Purifying Bag came completely sealed inside a thick plastic pouch, that ensured it was unused and hadn’t been absorbing anything until I opened it! As consumers, a seal is indeed reassuring & something that we all look for in new products! ❤
The Vayu bag outwardly looks like a tiny, stuffed jute bag and would look really cute (and not at all out-of-place) when hung around dining spaces or living rooms! What’s even better is that the jute like pattern gives it a rustic feel and you can hang artificial creepers and flowers from it to make it look even more beautiful (just a quick tip! 😉 )!
The bag is totally fragrance-free and is especially designed to remove odor from Indian homes, which is a really thoughtful thing… Because we all know, Indian cuisine is all about over-fragrant spices and food that can make you salivate even if you are meters away! 😛 So, this bag is going to be a great help for people with sensitive noses who cannot tolerate strong fragrances, be it from cooking or other activities like tobacco smoking and using strong perfumes… (for eg. Me! 😛 I am the lone vegetarian in my family and the days when they make fried fishes, I swear I want to run away from home… This Vayu bag is definitely a saviour for my olfactory system! 😀 )
These natural air purifying bags are capable of absorbing almost all kinds of gaseous pollutants, excess moisture and even a few common bacterias, all thanks to their internal charcoal structure that contains pores of various sizes and can trap particulate matter of all kinds… Plus, it’s just a one time investment when compared to electric air purifiers and the max you need to do is to put it under the sun for two hours in a month and it would serve you for 2 long years! Isn’t that super easy and cost-effective? And there’s no spike in the electricity bill too! 😀
The best part about these bags is that they can be hung anywhere and everywhere! From rooms to kitchens to wardrobes to shoe racks to laundry areas to cars… Just name a corner in your home, and you can hang a bag there! 😀
Personally, I prefer hanging it in my own room, beside my bed, because I spend 90% of my day there… XD
But, how and where do you plan to use this natural air purifier?
