Adding A Touch Of Green | Benefits of Indoor Plants


"It has been almost 20 years since the EPA confirmed the dangers of indoor VOCs (volatile organic chemicals), yet so little has been done to make the air inside our homes and offices and less toxic. Poor ventilation systems, sealed buildings and our use of synthetic products in the home are the main causes of our inner-pollution and, for most of us, these problems can’t be reversed overnight. But with the help of plant therapy, we can combat household VOCs and breathe easier. That is why we are super excited about this excellent Plants for Your Health chart from Good Magazine." - ALEXANDRA KAIN

Nasa's guide to purifying air with plants

"Indoor air pollutants like gas heaters, smoke, pressed wood, insulation, paint, pets, humans and even air fresheners. All of which can have detrimental effects to your health including headaches, bronchitis, asthma, and skin irritations, just to name a few. Thankfully, a few potted plants here and there can reverse some of the toxic effects in your abode, and bring life and color to a beige on beige rental."
