Each month, CNN’s new TV and digital series Eco Solutions will tell the stories of people around the world creating innovative solutions to preserve the planet. Hosted by CNN international correspondent and anchor,Isa Soares, the 15-minutes show will take viewers from the cities improving the air they breathe to the countries running on renewable energy.

In the first episode, Eco Solutions examines innovations in combating air pollution in Tezpur. Eco Solutions visits the small city of Tezpur, which has moved heavy vehicles out of the centre, and replaced local coal-powered tea plantation industries with LPG. Eco Solutions also looks at small projects underway in the large city of London to see how seemingly minor measures are also having some success in reducing harmful pollutants.
