To support better and safer breathing environment for the workers, Blueair joined hands with East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) to distribute 5,000 N-95 Anti-pollution to equip the worker to combat the rising air pollution problem in the city.
The masks distribution ceremony was organized at EDMC office where Mayor Bipin Bihari Singh, and Satyapal Singh, chairman East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) Standing Committee gave away N-95 Anti-pollution to the workers. Arvind Chabra, Country Head and Girish Bapat, Director South Asia, Middle East & Africa were also present during the ceremony.
Air quality in Delhi is already deemed to be highly polluted which after burning of crop residue and change in weather condition becomes more toxic and un-breathable and is taking major toll on its people, especially those who have to spend more of their time outside serving duty or other business.
Arvind Chabra, Country Head, Blueair India, said. “The rising air pollution is threat to human health especially to these workers who spend maximum time outdoors. These anti-pollution masks will minimize the major impact of toxic air on their health during the duty hours. Through this initiative, we aim to ensure good health and create a safer environment for the workers.”
Honorable Mayor Bipin Bihari Singh, said, “Our workers work day and night to keep the city clean. With the rising pollution levels, they are amongst the most vulnerable group who can easily fall prey to this rising menace. Hence, we joined hands with Blueair to distribute these high-quality N-95 Anti-pollution masks to them so that they are well protected from the threats of air pollution.”
Satyapal Singh, Chairman EDMC Standing Committee, said, “This initiative will help our workers to breathe clean air when the pollution is at its peak. As they are the ones who breathe the most toxic air while disposing the garbage and ensuring we all breathe pollution-free air in the city. Together,we support a clean and healthy city.”
