Air Pollution is China’s major environmental and public health problem. It has affected the life of Chinese people to such an extent, that outdoor activity is often planned depending on the level of the PM2.5 Air Quality Index.
In fact, smog has gotten so bad that in some areas, it’s equivalent to smoking 40 cigarettes a day.
With more and more people aware of the health impacts of air pollution, wearing face masks has become an everyday reality for many Chinese. They range from simple surgeon masks to trendy and colorful designer masks.
