Smart Air wants the world to know — effective air purifiers don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Check out how you can join the mission towards air pollution solutions, and make a real impact in the world we live in.
Transparency is one of Smart Air’s core values. As a social enterprise, they make a point to equip the consumer with reliable information about air pollution and air purification solutions.
Read informative and entertaining blog posts on the topic — like how many trees it would take to solve the air pollution problem, and whether or not pollution masks actually work!
As part of Smart Air’s campaign to educate consumers, they run workshops where participants assemble DIY purifiers to take home, and — because seeing is believing — the purifiers are tested on the spot with a particle counter. Everyone leaves the workshop having learned clean air doesn’t need to cost thousands of RMB.
Consider requesting a workshop for your company, school or organization. Smart Air commonly delivers workshops in Beijing and Shanghai. But if outside of these cities, and your audience is large enough, Smart Air can sometimes make exceptions.

Smart Air started in Beijing back in 2013, when Thomas — one of two co-founders — was shocked by just how expensive air purifiers were. So, he decided to put it to the test. He bought a few common models, stripped them apart, and realized air purifiers are simply two parts — a fan and a filter.
Inspired by his findings, he went to work. He bought a HEPA filter, manually rigged it to a fan, and ran some air quality tests with a particle counter. Low and behold — his low cost DIY solution could purify air just as well as the store-bought models. Eureka — Smart Air was born!
Fast forward to today, they’ve researched and developed multiple generations of commercially available air purifiers — including the basic DIY kit, personal home models, and high-volume commercial solutions.
The team believes the traditional air purifier industry lacks transparency — charging high prices to cover marketing costs and exaggerated features — a disservice to the average consumer who just wants clean air and less hassle.
Smart Air stand true to their roots. As a social enterprise, they continue to fight the negative health effects of air pollution through awareness and education programs supported through sales of no-nonsense air purifiers.
