What are the main causes of air pollution?
During Diwali, as you can easily guess, the millions of crackers burst throughout the country result in a drastic increase in air pollution.
But the cooler temperatures of winter also play a crucial role. During summers, warm air rises faster, leaving the lower levels relatively cleaner. In colder months, due to a phenomenon called ‘winter inversion’, cool air and heavy pollutants are trapped closer to ground levels by the warmer air above.
This Diwali, you can protect yourself from PM 2.5 pollutants that settle at ground level with these masks. Click here to purchase them now!
