INDOOR PLANT BENEFITS

THE NASA GUIDE TO AIR FILTERING INDOOR PLANT

It won’t surprise you to hear that the majority of people spend the bulk of their time indoors, whether it’s at home or working in an office environment. As such, it’s important to ensure that air quality is of a high standard, something that regular houseplants can help achieve. Back in 1989, NASA conducted a Clean Air Study in association with the Associated Landscape Contractors of America, in an effort to find the most effective common indoor plants for filtering harmful toxins and pollutants from the air. Their results have stood the test of time, and the most effective air-filtering plants can be found below.
