Our mission

Airthings’ mission is to ensure that people around the world take control of their air quality through simple, affordable and accurate technology solutions – making radon and air quality detectors as common as smoke detectors.

Kreftforeningen

Kreftforeningen, the Norwegian Cancer Society, contributes to targeted efforts in cancer information and prevention. As a Norway-based company, working with a local NGO is important to Airthings.

Fighting lung cancer

Every year 3000 Norwegians get lung cancer. In 12% of these cases, radon gas is a contributing cause. Working with Kreftforeningen, we aim to reduce the number of people affected by radon gas poisoning. In collaboration with Norwegian libraries, Airthings and Kreftforeningen are making radon measurement available to more people through lending out radon monitors for free.

Airthings

Established in 2008, Airthings is a Norway-based tech company that develops and manufactures products to easily monitor and identify radon levels in indoor air. Airthings’ mission is to ensure people around the world take control of their air quality through simple, affordable and accurate solutions. We believe in using technology to promote, maintain, and improve the health and safety of everyone.

What is radon?

Radon surrounds every one of us as part of the air we breathe. Approximately 21,000 people die from radon-related lung cancer every year in the United States alone. Lungs have especially sensitive tissue made of living cells that allows oxygen molecules to pass from the air we breathe into our bloodstream. When radon is inhaled, it can damage local cell DNA, potentially causing lung cancer.
