eco-Problem and Health Problem HEPA filters are typically made of either fiberglass or a form of polyester fibers and unfortunately, these materials are not recyclable and not biodegradable. 15,000,000 air filters were purchased in 2019 and the filter needs to be replaced every 6-8 months. Globally, 6,000 tonnes of HEPA filters are sent to landfills every year and it will take 1,000+ years for them to decompose.
In 2017 approximately 1.6 million people worldwide died as a result of indoor air pollution. The quality of the air within your home can have a huge impact on your health & wellbeing.

Reusability and recyclability: Most of Briiv’s components can be composted or recycled; our packaging is formed from recycled material, our filtration elements are either naturally occurring (moss and coconut) or sustainably sourced (ethical peace silk) and the bioplastic housing is easily biodegradable.
Natural Materials Every component of Briiv has been meticulously considered. Parts that are not biodegradable, such as glass, can be easily recycled. This leaves only the electrical components.
