Sanitation is a necessary standard. We have been often taught this idea from a very young age, how it is necessary for personal life. However, what is often left out is the reasoning for sanitation and the science behind it. The truth of the matter is, the importance of sanitation should start with the "why". Why is it important to be sanitary? Why should you care about the environment around you? And how the changing environment can affect you? airDefender has come together to give you a few answers.

It's Bigger Than You

The CDC estimates that the common flu alone has resulted in between 9-45 million cases, 140,000-810,000 hospitalizations and 12,000-61,000 deaths annually since 2010. Frequent and safe sanitation has helped reduce the number of deaths over the decades. With that said, sanitation is bigger than you; your habits can affect many and creating a sound routine for sanitation can potentially save lives. Being mindful about your sanitation habits, like washing your hands before touching your face or sanitizing surfaces, every day is a great way to put yourself and others forward, saving the lives of people you may have never met.

The Little Things Add Up

The best way to implement a new habit is to consciously fit it into your routine. If you’re only sanitizing your hands or wiping down your grocery cart because of the pandemic, then you’re missing out on the opportunity to take part in a lifestyle that has exponential benefits down the line. In many ways, this pandemic has shown us that living a cleaner, healthier lifestyle can potentially immensely rewarding. By doing our part, we can all protect others and potentially save the lives of thousands. Every life matters, and we should all do our part to protect our neighbors of this Earth, not just now, but now and on. So, join the movement towards living a safe and sanitized lifestyle!

Stay Safe While Science Is Growing

The CDC and FDA pride themselves on staying up to date with the latest health risks and discoveries, doing so very well. But with that fact comes the understanding that they are always learning, experimenting, and evolving. A huge aspect of doing your part is to fill in the gap where the information and current technology is lacking. Do your own research of all sides, then take action and continue with a sanitary lifestyle as science catches up with the new viruses and bacteria that naturally surface over time. If you make it a point to sanitize your environment and live mindfully with others around you who may be living with different health risks than you are, there is no doubt that, as a society, we will be heading in the right direction.
