    Like every country, India too has strict laws to protect the environment comprising land, air and water. These laws are for the industrial section, for roads to control smoke from vehicles, for residential and commercial complexes. It is also very important for these organizations to abide by the rules. BUt still in spite of these laws their is a situation of rising water, land and air pollution every year, well rising population is the main reason to explain it all.

    We all need to take collective steps to protect the environment and also our family members from the side effects of this pollution. Water purifier became popular in Indian domestic homes to get clean and purified water but the air was certainly ignored, believing how can we get purified air. But Livpure has launched HEPA air purifiers in India that has as many as 8 filtration systems to give you clean and purified air. Technology has definitely introduced some innovative ideas that will help to stay fit and healthy.
