In recent years, figures about high levels of air pollution in the UK have raised concerns that air toxicity is having a significant, but neglected, impact on health. Levels of toxic air in the UK have broken EU legal limits every year since 2010.
As air pollution in the UK has become a catastrophic invisible killer, it’s no wonder that 2018 is all about clean breathing with recent the Global Wellness Summit revealing that people are looking for ways to have cleaner environmental practices, by choosing ‘lung-cleansing’ travel destinations for instance.
In line with this healthier behaviour, Brits buying second homes overseas to relocate or retire to are choosing healthier environments. The Iberian Peninsula is the ideal destination for that, with the 2017 World Happiness Report ranking Spain as one of the top 5 countries where people live the longest. Experts remind that clean air is fundamental as air pollution is often associated with reduced life expectancy.
Despite being a country with significant motor traffic which is the main cause of the low air quality in and around Spanish cities, many studies show that Malaga city’s air is amongst the cleanest in Spain. A recent study conducted by Malaga Council revealed that residents can breathe good quality air in 95% of the city.
Always committed to delivering what clients want, Spain’s leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey España, which has operated successfully in Spain for 60 years (1958-2018), is building eco-friendly homes in Malaga province for those looking to live and breathe clean.
“Regardless of your age, air quality is key for good health so it’s no wonder that we as homebuilders are responsible for putting measures to protect residents wherever possible. So we build homes with sustainable features and in eco-friendly environments where people can live the healthy Mediterranean lifestyle. “
