London has the highest levels of pollution in the UK, killing almost 9,500 people annually and disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable in society.

Pollution Kills is an air-filtering jacket that acts as a public statement to take control of the quality of the air we breathe, addressing challenge 4 of the climate crisis brief.

Through a system of embedded filtration channels on the inside of the jacket, the jacket discretely filters air pollution and provides a constant flow of fresh air, eliminating the need for obstructive masks and enabling access to clean air.
