Did you know London breached its annual air pollution limit for 2017 just five days into the year?
London’s air is toxic and we all need to do our part to help make London’s air cleaner and safer to breathe. Green Tomato Cars has always been committed to helping improve London’s environment and that is why we have partnered with CleanSpace to help tackle air pollution.
The tag has been created by Drayson Technologies with the aim to help address the severe problem. This will equip businesses and the public with the information they need to understand air pollution levels in London.
How will we collect the data?
Green Tomato Cars vehicles have been equipped with CleanSpaceTM Tag – and our drivers will be using the sensors daily, automatically passing on air pollution data to its customers.
Over the duration of this project we will be releasing statistics and figures on the most polluted routes around London, we will be identifying vulnerable locations for air pollution exposure, such as hospitals and schools. This will allow our drivers to use best practice guidelines for travelling through these areas, such as switching to electric mode where possible.
The first step towards change is awareness, and your journey is helping to map air pollution in London street by street that in turn will help London breathe.
