This is part of a series of articles that looks at entrepreneurs hoping to get their ideas off the ground through crowdfunding. At the time of writing, each of these innovations is currently seeking funding.

Scientific studies have shown that those most at risk from air pollution are those least able to do anything about it – young children. Because children’s immune systems are not fully developed until they are around four or five years old, and they spend more time outside, and close to the ground where pollution is at its most harmful, they end up inhaling more pollutants per pound of bodyweight than adults. This is particularly true of particulates, which then lodge in the deepest parts of their developing lungs. It is no wonder that, according to a recent report by UNICEF, more than 600,000 child deaths worldwide each year can be directly attributed to air pollution. We have already seen air filters designed to be worn around the neck and which looks like a scarf, now an air filter has been designed expressly for infants.
