Close the Door started a project with the retailers around the Tottenham Court Road with the Fitzrovia BID today. On a cold, damp day there was the expected mix of open and closed shop doors. Very friendly staff. Some complained of cold when the door was open, noise on the street and a Head Office Open Door policy. Some managers ignored a company open door policy on their own initiative. Almost none had heard about the very high levels of air pollution on the Tottenham Court Road (over twice the EU limit and amongst the highest in London), what it means for their health, or that closing the door greatly improves air quality inside.
With many thanks to The Fitzrovia Partnership BID for their support and help.
