Every Echo or Airo Fume Hood Plants a Grove of Trees

Sun streaming through trees

One large tree can provide a day’s supply of oxygen for up to four people (The Arbor Day Foundation). Imagine how much oxygen can be provided by a whole grove of trees.

Help Labconco Grow Our Grove

With every Protector Echo or Airo purchase, Labconco will plant a grove of trees through our partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation. We have helped plant thousands of trees to date, continuing our duty to the environment and our sustainable practices growing.

Trees absorb CO2, removing and storing the carbon and releasing the oxygen back into the air, similarly to how our Protector Echo and Airo turn contaminated air into clean, chemical-free air. Their Neutrodine® Unisorb filters can remove more than 700 chemicals.

Other eco-friendly benefits

Filtered hoods are a great way to conserve energy for some laboratory functions. A standard fume hood pumps your heat or air conditioning out of your building, making your HVAC units work overtime and drain your energy and money. Filtered fume hoods, like Labconco’s Protector Echo and Airo, filter the air and leave a much smaller carbon footprint, while also lowering your utility costs. When you aren’t exhausting tempered air, energy costs can significantly decrease.

A fume hood expert can tell you how a filtered fume hood would affect your laboratory, environment, and your budget.
