We believe that at least 3 billion people live without any clue of what they breathe in and without any tool to advocate for changes in the environmental approach of their governments and pollutants. Those countries are usually white spots on all air pollution maps because on the one hand, people cannot afford expensive air quality sensors, on the other hand, governments are reluctant to build public monitoring networks and/or share information. We developed a unique non-profit model of independent air quality monitoring which consists of two components: (1) chat-bot and map informing citizens about hazardous levels of air pollution--SaveEcoBot (2) super-affordable air pollution sensor which costs only $50--SaveEcoSensor.
