Air quality in the playground

There is no more important outdoor environment to protect from the dangerous toxins of traffic pollution than the school playground and beyond. The levels of the harmful pollutants nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and small particles (PM10) are at dangerous levels. Research and evidence is painting an increasingly stark picture of the effects that poor air quality can have on human health and increased numbers of people succumbing to cardiovascular and lung complaints. London has some of the highest levels of pollution in the UK.

The pollution reducing power of green screens

On going research shows that Ivy Green Screens, grown by Mobilane can help remove PM10 particulate pollution – in some sample locations up to 60% of the particles were “cleansed” from the air behind the screens. Research continues to further validate these initial findings, but increasingly, the installation of Ivy Green Screens offers a valuable natural screening option to reduce the harsh effects of urban pollution from our schools and local communities. In addition the Ivy green screens offer additional privacy, sound absorption and general well being
