Love Your Lungs Week16th June 2020 / Posted by Rachael Aldridge
From 22nd to 28th June, the UK’s lung health awareness week is taking place, which is all the more important this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, together with the fact that the UK has the 4th highest mortality rate from lung disease in Europe. Reduction in air pollution increases lung health, and according to the British Lung Foundation, two million people in the UK with respiratory conditions such as asthma have experienced reduced symptoms due to cleaner air during the coronavirus lockdown. CRP are proud to run projects which positively impact on lung health through the reduction of air pollution. Clean Air Villages 3 activities are estimated to reduce emissions by 86.7kg of NOx, and 24,171kg of CO2.
