Get a personal-care device inside of your car to help reduce your carbon footprint and help reduce air pollution, says a new report from the Australian Institute of Environmental and Resource Management (AEREM).
“This report demonstrates that the most effective way to reduce emissions and protect our air quality is to use personal care products inside your vehicle,” said lead researcher Dr Dan McGrew, who is a lecturer in Environmental Health at the University of New South Wales.
“If you have a vehicle, you can use it as a laboratory to see if you can get rid of your CO2 emissions in your home.”
The study, conducted by AEREM and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), looked at the use of personal care devices in the household, such as toothbrushes, soap and toothpaste, in the home, as well as on the road.
It found that there was a significant impact on the air quality of homes, with personal care items emitting a significantly greater amount of carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide, which can be harmful to your health.
Dr McGrew said there were several factors to consider when deciding which products you would be best using inside your home, and it could be the choice of what you use inside the car.
“One important consideration is the amount of air you breathe into the car, and this could be influenced by a number of factors,” he said.
For example, “an appliance may be able to operate much more efficiently if the air pressure is higher inside the vehicle, or if there are more vents inside the cabin to help control the amount and type of air coming in.”
A car can also benefit from having more space inside the garage to increase the space to use for storage and storage of your equipment.
“For homes with multiple vehicles, the study found that using a personal device in the car could help to reduce the air pollution in the house.”
If you are using your car for more than one vehicle, a personal cleaning device can also be a good option,” Dr McGrew explained.
He said personal care instruments and products could be an important tool for reducing your carbon emissions, and that “in some circumstances, they might be even more important”.”
A personal cleaning tool might be an essential tool for you to reduce your household emissions in the long run, as it might be more efficient to use it on a regular basis than an ordinary cleaning tool.
“”You might think that you have all the tools you need to reduce air emissions, but if you are having difficulty, you might need to consider whether a personal tool is the best option,” he added.
The research also looked at which products were being used to reduce CO2 in the environment, with products such as car wash soap, toothbrush, toothpaste and hairbrush being used most often.
In addition to reducing CO2, Dr McGraw said personal-related products could also reduce the use and waste of personal items in the community, such an air purifying device, for example.”
This also means that the community benefits as a result.”
