A Naperville native is making a national difference through acting.
Twenty-four year old Max Ganet plays Alvin Grimes – the Air Collector in a new PSA campaign for the American Lung Association.
Alvin loves air. He takes samples in jars, flies kites and lays out under the sun while fanning himself all to promote a free smartphone application.
“The State of the Air” app tells you just how clean or polluted your air is, showing different levels by color codes that correspond with various health concerns.
“It’s just another way to put the word out there that we need to be environmentally safe and to think about what we are putting into the air. Try to prevent it from getting any worse,” said actor Max Ganet.
The American Lung Association reported in April that more than 127 million people live in areas with dangerous levels of ozone or particle pollution.
