Commenting on the launch Anand Gupta, CEO, MyOxy said, “Pollution continues to be a massive problem across India. Studies have shown that one out of every four premature deaths in India can be attributed to pollution. Pollution levels in Delhi/NCR are at an all-time high, with the most recent figures showing PM 2.5 levels (particulate matter) at 158. The Air Quality Index (AQI) of Delhi recently dived into the ‘very poor’ category and was last recorded at 337. While the Government is making efforts, we have unfortunately observed little progress in the state of air quality in Delhi. MyOxy is an endeavour to help people in polluted cities like Delhi/NCR realize the benefits of fresh oxygen and make it a part of their everyday life for their safety. The can have been designed in an easy to use, compact packaging that is lightweight, weighing lesser than your mobile phones, and can be stored at room temperature.”
