The roots of the “green movement” is now present throughout the world. It originated during the industrial revolution as citizens first became aware of the negative impacts of pollution. To pay tribute to the roots and development and the green movement that continues to grow and expand today, Fast Haul, a junk hauler, created the “Growth of the Green Movement” infographic.
Although implementing far-reaching measures at the national- and state-level government help. For example and such as 100 per cent electric public transportation. Thereby curtailing outputs from factories. Then start allocating more than US$10 billion to address air quality. Then several cities see the concentration of PM 2.5 drop dramatically.
Finally, air pollution goes to the heart of social justice and global inequality. According to the World Health Organization, 97 per cent of cities in low income countries are bad. Because with more than 100,000 inhabitants do not meet air quality guidelines. That percentage falls to 49 in high-income countries.
By committing to BreatheLife countries are improving. From Bogotá (Colombia), Lalitpur and Kathmandu (Nepal). Then to Honduras, Bogor City (Indonesia), the Republic of Moldova, Monaco, Montevideo (Uruguay) and Mexico demonstrate their dedication. They are all collaborating on the clean air solutions that will help us get to a World Free of Air Pollution faster. The new commitments bring the number of cities, regions and countries in the BreatheLife network to 63, representing 271.4 million citizens around the world.
In the past two years, the database – now covering more than 4300 cities and settlements in 108 countries – has nearly doubled, with more and more locations measuring air pollution levels and recognizing the associated health impacts.
Finally and so as air quality declines health improved. Therefore the risk of stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, and chronic and acute respiratory diseases go away. That’s also including asthma, increases for the people who live in them.
