Brizi Baby Cleans Urban Smog To Give Your Child Fresh Air

By Brian Spaen

Urban air pollution isn’t just an issue that we have to protect our planet in the long term. It impacts us right now with seven million premature deaths annually around the world from inhaling toxic contaminants. In order to protect children, a London startup has created a filtering system that can clean up to 80 percent of the air they breathe.

In nearly all of the United Kingdom’s cities, nitrogen dioxide has reached above the legal limits with diesel car exhaust in the last seven years. Those particles that are inhaled could turn into health problems, especially for babies and children that are still developing. Brizi has created their first product, the Brizi Baby, that filters those contaminants in the air to keep the air round them as clean as possible.

The Brizi Baby is a cushioned fan filter add-on for prams and strollers. When activated, the product will automatically turn on and clean the air when an additional Brizi Sensor detects harmful gases above standard levels. There’s a carbon layer in the filter that removes the gas and an additional fabric layer that pulls nasty particles out of the air at 2.5 micrometers or less.
