Have you seen the American Lung Association‘s new Public Service Announcement on TV? If so, you might be wondering, “who’s that handsome air collector?” Well, it’s me. I’m Alvin Grimes. I’m super proud to be a part of the new Breathe Smarter campaign promoting the FREE State of the Air® smartphone app. When I’m not adding to my extensive air collection, I enjoy connecting with people who love air. You can find me on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. The American Lung Association even let me set up my own bio page—check it out.
I’ve been collecting air for as long as I can remember. Some people say it’s weird, but if you think about it, everyone is an air collector. I use jars with labels. Most folks just use their lungs. And nobody wants to collect gross air.
With the State of the Air® app, I can see my EPA air quality forecast before I go out collecting. It’s easy to use and helps me find the best air samples for my collection. Download the free app today and learn more about the air your lungs are collecting.
Oh one more thing, if you don’t have enough shelf space to keep your air collection in jars, taking pictures of air is an awesome alternative. Want to share photos of air you’re collecting? Post your snazzy snapshots of air to my Facebook page or tag your photos elsewhere with #myair.
I’ll be in touch. Until then, you know where to find me.
