Best Green Building Products: Rabbit Air Filters Create Ambiance While Purifying the Air
Sex sells so why not make a sexy, portable air purifier you'll want to get just because it would look so cool in your living space? Enter Rabbit Air. The company was founded in 2004 in Los Angeles, California and according to INC Magazine was one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. from 2009 to 2012. Rabbit Air's MinusA2 (Pictured above) is so thin it can be hung on the wall like a painting. One can customize the MinusA2 with images by famous artists or original designs by Rabbit Air's creative team.

The MinusA2 has a sister called the BioGS2.0. Industrial designer Guto Indio da Costa’s concept of "flow" resonates throughout the BioGS 2.0. It looks more like a sculpture than a clunky looking air purifier that we are used to seeing. (See pic below)
What's really great about Rabbit Air's products is not just the pleasant, sophisticated design, but their energy efficiency and the ability to use them for targeted air purification for any area or room in your house. The portable HEPA air purifiers from Rabbit Air are also super quiet and reduce large-size particles, pet hair and dander, dust, pollen, bacteria, mold, odors, and allergens. In addition to HEPA filters, Rabbit Air filters include an electrostatic pre-filter, their BioGS HEPA filter, as well as other filters based on the model you select.

But you do not want to get a Rabbit Ait filter just because they are pretty. They are practical too. According to the EPA, the air inside your home may be even more polluted than the air outside. The American Lung Association has stated that nearly six out of ten Americans live in areas with unhealthy levels of air pollution. Rabbit Air explains on their web site: " Sick Building Syndrome, a worldwide phenomenon, results when chemical substances used in office construction are steadily released into the atmosphere from electronic equipment, carpeting, furniture and fittings. Virus, fungus, bacteria and hundreds of other germs are carried in the air at all times. If inhaled into the lungs, germs can cause cold, flu, pneumonia and other respiratory infections. "
With so many of us suffering from asthma and sensitivity to allergens and other chemicals in the air, every household should develop a targeted air purification plan. Sometimes it is not practical to create a whole house ventilation strategy. With portable air filters, like those from Rabbit Air, you can create ambiance and have clean air where and when you need it.
