    Yosi Romano

    Brizi Inventor

    For those of us who live in the big city, air pollution is part of our daily lives. Often you can smell it, sometimes you can see it too. News reports about the health problems associated with air pollution seem to come out every week but somehow I always managed to put them to the back of my mind.

     

    Then when my daughter, Alma, came into the world everything changed.

     

    Pushing Alma’s pram through the busy streets of London, it struck me how close she seemed to where cars, buses, taxis and trucks were pumping out exhaust fumes that would sometimes even make me cough. I did my research and I found out that some of the most dangerous kinds of air pollution hang in the air exactly at the height where Alma sits in her stroller. Even worse, I learned that the lungs of young children lack the defenses that adults have against gases and particulates that can cause asthma, allergies, respiratory diseases and reduce life expectancy.

     

    I decided that something needed to be done. That’s when Brizi was born.
