Two-time Olympic gold medalist inspires health and wellness

Bionaire and the AER1 Filter Series partner with Catriona Le May Doan to 
promote indoor air quality and general wellness this winter 
TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - In an effort to promote overall health and 
wellness this season, Bionaire aer1 filter series has joined forces with 
two-time Olympic gold medalist Catriona Le May Doan. Catriona will work with 
aer1 to educate Canadians on how to stay healthy when the weather gets cold 
outside, including the importance of good indoor air quality. 
"As an Olympian who competed in cold conditions, I know the importance of 
staying healthy during winter. It can be a definite challenge in a climate 
like Canada's," says Catriona. "I'm also a mother and a pet owner. When the 
windows are closed to keep out chilly weather, the family pet still sheds and 
dust still builds up. That's why I use Bionaire aer1 filtration systems in my 
"Catriona is a natural fit to help us promote winter wellness and the 
importance of good indoor air quality to Canadians," said Jamie Libregts, 
Senior Marketing Manager at Jarden Consumer Solutions. "She's a world-class 
athlete who can certainly relate to maintaining respiratory health in extreme 
winter conditions, but is also a mother who means business when it comes to 
the health of her family." 
A survey conducted by aer1 revealed that 65 per cent of Canadians who suffer 
from seasonal illness and allergies are most likely to feel symptoms in 
winter: it's not surprising that 79 per cent of the population also say 
they're concerned about air-borne pathogens and illness. 
Boasting true high-efficiency particular air filtration (HEPA) and 
antimicrobial qualities to prevent the growth of fungi, bacteria and viruses, 
the Bionaire aer1 filter series, available at WalMart, can be an invaluable 
tool when it comes to warding off seasonal sickness. Yet, many Canadians 
underestimate the positive effects air purifiers can have on indoor air 
quality and overall health. The aer1 ready™ Bionaire® Air Purifiers can 
help prevent the spread of seasonal viruses such as the flu and the common 
cold, as well as particulates such as pet dander and dust. 
The aer1 survey also revealed that 46 per cent of Canadians falsely believe 
the worst indoor air quality is in the office and were unaware that the air 
inside a home is twice as polluted as the air outside. 
Regardless, whether your goal is to trap pet dander or reduce household odors, 
Bionaire aer1's customized air filters offer simple, colour-coded solutions 
that positively impact overall air quality and health.
