'We know plants nourish us on the inside, and now we’re using
them to protect us from outside hazards too'.Sustainable vegan energy drink brand, Tenzing, has unveiled a tree planting scheme to combat air pollution in the UK capital, London.
The Plants Against Pollution campaign involves creating natural tree ‘barriers’ in spots where pollution is especially high.
It is hoped the scheme will ensure people out exercising are less affected by harmful pollution levels.
Tenzing launched an air tracker two years ago and has since compiled a database of popular running, cycling and walking routes.
Based on the data, the company worked out where the most urgent areas were. Now, it is planting evergreen trees and shrubs in those areas.
The scheme is in partnership with Imperial College London.
