Airthings’ mission is to ensure that people around the world take control of their air quality through simple, affordable and accurate technology solutions – making radon and air quality detectors as common as smoke detectors.
Every five minutes a woman in the U.S. learns she has lung cancer and in the last 30 years the number of women dying from it each year has nearly doubled. Radon gas is a leading cause of lung cancer and can affect anyone. Education is key in our fight against this invisible threat. The American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE aims to unite and mobilize women against lung cancer.
The work done by the American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE initiative is important to Airthings, which is why we are partnering with them to help fight lung cancer. For every Corentium Home and Airthings Wave sold on Airthings.com throughOctober 31, 2020, Airthings will donate $1 to the American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE initiative to fund lung cancer research*. We stand together with the American Lung Association against lung cancer.
Established in 2008, Airthings is a Norway-based tech company that develops and manufactures products to easily monitor and identify radon levels in indoor air. Airthings’ mission is to ensure people around the world take control of their air quality through simple, affordable and accurate solutions. We believe in using technology to promote, maintain, and improve the health and safety of everyone.
Radon surrounds every one of us as part of the air we breathe, and can build to dangerous levels inside homes, schools and other buildings. An estimated 21,000 people die from radon-related lung cancer every year in the United States alone. Lungs have especially sensitive tissue made of living cells that allows oxygen molecules to pass from the air we breathe into our bloodstream. When radon is inhaled, it can damage local cell DNA, potentially causing lung cancer.
*Airthings will donate $1 from each Corentium Home and Airthings Wave sold on Airthings.com through October 31, 2020, with a minimum donation of $25,000 to the American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE initiative to support lung cancer research. For more information visit lung.org/airthings.
