Earth Day Focus: Expand Your Thinking From the Great Outdoors and Renew Your Home's Environment With an Energy Star-Rated Honeywell Air Purifier

SOUTHBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2008) - Earth Day, celebrated Tuesday, April 22, gives millions of environmentally aware people across the globe an opportunity to renew their commitment to sustaining a safer, healthier and cleaner planet. While much of the focus is on the outdoor environment, millions would also benefit from a healthier indoor environment.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates indoor air can be two to five times (and occasionally as much as 100 times) more polluted than the air in the great outdoors. Maintaining a cleaner indoor environment should also be part of our collective consciousness on Earth Day.

Effective air purifiers, like Honeywell air purifiers, eliminate at least 99% of airborne pollutants that pass through their filters, capturing common allergens such as dust, pollen, pet dander and smoke. Some Honeywell air purifiers are even effective at fighting germs such as bacteria, viruses, mold spores and fungi. Honeywell air purifiers can help circulate the air in a room several times per hour -- helping to reduce stuffy, stale, polluted air. Plus, the Honeywell air purifier line includes an Energy Star-rated unit, enabling consumers to reduce energy consumption while still caring for their indoor air. Honeywell air purifiers also feature permanent filters that can simply be vacuumed or washed -- reducing the impact of waste in landfills generated by replaceable filters.

Honeywell air purifiers recently received "Best Buy" ratings in their categories by Consumers Digest magazine. A Consumers Digest "Best Buy" rating is awarded to products that have "exceptional value in today's highly competitive marketplace." Honeywell air purifiers integrate attractively into any home décor, feature advanced technology, are simple to clean and operate quietly.
