The main motto of this application is to reduce the pollution by increasing the greenery part around us. Air pollution is one of the major problems facing today almost all age group of people in the society. This pollution is more high in metro cities due to heavy usage of vehicles and other industries etc. As the pollution is being increasing day to day, the number of people being caused or affected by serious lung diseases and other type of serious inhaling problems are also increasing a lot. Now days, due to the heavy increase in the number of people in cities, the usage of vehicles and smoking and also other issues, the pollution is increasing a lot. Due to increase in people number, to accommodate such people, deforestation is one of the major things being implemented by the people in cities. As a result of this the eco imbalance is being increasing a lot. As a result of this deforestation, the major solution giving by most of the environmentalists are the plantation of trees or plants in homes or in indoors. As we grow the indoor plants, the quantity of oxygen generation being increased and the levels of carbon dioxide may be reduced. In the current article, a mobile based application has been developed such that to identify the levels of CO2 in the indoor places and suggests the users to plant the indoor plants in number such that to reduce the impact of the pollution. Whoever will register in this application can get the data about the level of pollution and advice of how many plants to be placed or grown in their particular indoor places.
