When it so-so, it glow orange and red when it's bad. Sad to say if my country would imitate this balloon and put one in Metro Manila, I think it would always be red. I guess we should get one for our country. That way people will be more conscious of keeping the air clean. If your country gets one for your city, what color do you think you'll get?
