Air Quality Monitors

Commercial air quality monitors cost around $100 and up.

We created a kit that you can easily put together that cost around $60.

It uses the popular Arduino microcontroller, small display and a sensor that

measures various gases that impact air quality. It provides a measurement of these

air pollutants in parts per million (PPM).

EarthEcho  with its “Water Challenge”, is an international organization that is gathering water quality information from around the world and selling relatively inexpensive kits for individual can do their own water testing.
