Litter-ready almost zero budget kit to provide fresh air to our body when pollution rate is high. This wearable plant is a recognition of the green movement for air pollution. Anyone can create this idea at home for fresh air to enter our lungs directly from recycling waste. He presented it as a symbol of protest in front of the Punjab and Haryana assembly buildings before the swearing in of newly elected MLAs and ministers of Haryana. He called upon the leaders in Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR) to find an immediate solution to the current crisis of air pollution.
In an interview with The Northeast Today, he said: "This is the ultimate solution. Those who are obliged to ensure a 'secure future' for their 'Generation Next' are not qualified." "" I am Chiku Chiu's "Planet Trip ". "This discovery sends a fatal message about environmental degradation and calls into question the planet's unknown future and environmental degradation," Liquipria told the Shillong Times. Governments are blaming each other instead of finding long-term solutions to serious air pollution. Children cannot go out of their homes in Delhi. The government has closed all schools. They must act now or our future will die."

Another hole at the bottom provides natural fresh air inside the tank with four layers of activated carbon. Plants symbolize our dying environment and our planet for humans.

I have been working for the health of children and infants. I am worried about. Lipripia is sending a strong message to all those who are destroying our future. According to a city-wide survey, air pollution in India per year It is estimated to kill 1.5 million people, the fifth largest killer in India, the world's largest death rate due to chronic respiratory diseases and asthma. In Delhi, low-quality air is available to almost all children. 2 million or 50 percent of the lungs are damaged. D term solutions are needed to protect people's health, especially children and our environment.
