In February this year, 400 Dyson Pure Cool™ purifying fans were sent to schools in areas of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) affected by bushfire smoke pollution. With in-depth expertise in air quality technology, Dyson air purifiers are engineered to automatically sense pollution, capture gases and ultrafine particles, and project clean air to every corner of the room while reporting on air quality levels in real time.
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s (CBA) Institutional Banking and Markets team played a key role in facilitating the distribution of 400 Dyson Pure Cool™ purifying fans to 88 ACT Government schools within three weeks.
The ACT Government’s Education Directorate assisted with the deployment of at least two Dyson Pure Cool purifying fans to each of the 88 public schools in the ACT to ensure that each location had a designated area with purified air for vulnerable children and young people. The remaining products were distributed to schools on the basis of the level of relative vulnerability of students and local environmental conditions.
“At Dyson, we want to make a genuine difference to peoples’ lives in bushfire-impacted areas, right now and in the future. Children can take up to 30,000 breaths a day. Their lungs are still developing, which makes them vulnerable to air pollution so it is vital to find effective solutions. By donating our purification technologies to schools in areas severely affected by bushfire smoke pollution, we want to tackle the growing problems associated with poor air quality and help improve wellbeing.”
Additionally, Dyson cord-free and full-size vacuums were donated to families who have sadly lost their homes or possessions in NSW, as well as those who suffer from asthma or allergies in smoke-affected areas, helping to remove fine dust and dirt.
Please note, Dyson air purifiers are tested to Dyson internal test method TM-003711 in a 27m2 room.
