Beijing Chooses Italian Anti-Pollution Technology

Sanispira nasal filter

China’s capital Beijing selected a low cost Italian made near invisible nasal filter to help protect its citizens from the city’s increasing levels of atmospheric pollution.

The near invisible filter, made by Italian company HSD Europe and sold under the Sanispira brand, is costing Beijing, a city with a population of over 20 million, a mere 13 Eurocents a piece.

This is what the company has to say about its nose filter:

Sanispira is an innovative nasal filter designed to trap fine dust, pollens and other allergens. A practical, hygienic and aesthetically (almost) invisible solution.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Note that this filter, as well as keeping the effects of air pollution at bay, can also help hay fever sufferers.

You may be able to find Sanispira filters in a local pharmacy, but if not, you can order them online direct from the Sanispira website: Sanispira filters – make sure you get the right size and beware of delivery costs too. You won’t be paying 13 Eurocents per nasal filter, I’m afraid, unless, that is, you order enough for a city with 20 million or so people.

Alternatively, if you are interested in distributing Sanispira filters in your own country, give the company, HSD Europe a shout.
