Detoxing Indoor Air
Did you know that indoor air can be as much as FIVE times more polluted than outside air? Woah! For an easy, attractive and oh-so-effective way to improve your indoor air quality, look no further than your nearest houseplant. That perky spider plant that requires almost no nurturing at all is a hardworking air-filter, sucking up the toxins that are outgassed from computers and electronics, as well as plastics, fire-retardants, chemical cleaners and other unpleasantries.
In fact, scientists have studied which house plants are most effective at detoxing the air and balancing the humidity level in your home. These plants are especially hungry for some of the worst known toxins - like benzene, formaldehyde and carbon monoxide - all the while releasing pure healthy oxygen back into your environment... What's not to love?
Here's are the species to look for:
- Areca palm
- Bamboo palm or Reed palm
- Boston fern
- Chinese evergreen
- Dwarf date palm
- English Ivy
