In an effort to help Indian consumers keep their homes free of air pollution, a Kolkata-based startup called Lifetree has developed an inexpensive air purifier called Lily. Designed to work with a home's existing ceiling fan, Lily is an affordable alternative to high-tech air purifiers.
Lily is described as a "giant pollution mask" comprised of two simple parts: filter pipes that purify the air and a non-woven protective shield that covers the fan itself. The idea is that consumers install Lily directly underneath their existing ceiling fan to create a DIY air purifier. The device then uses the power of the fan so that no extra cost is required to run the device. Lily also features a washable filter so that there is no ongoing maintenance cost.
For Indian consumers who are looking for a more affordable way to remove air pollution from the home, this DIY air purifier is a great option.
