Purify your indoor Air Naturally!


Did you all know that the best natural source of air purifier are HOUSE PLANTS! 
Back in the late '80s, NASA and the Associated Landscape Contractors of America studied houseplants as a way to purify the air in space facilities. In this research they found many plants that filter out common volatile organic compounds (VOCs). I also found other resources and studies that confirm and validate the How house plants purify our air in our homes. You may wonder what pollutants are found in indoor air of our homes?  A frightening list of volatile organic compounds, xylene, hexane, heptane, octane, decane, trichloroethylene or TCE, methylene chloride and formaldehyde have been found in indoor air. They are other factor like pollutants that are also linked to have serious health impacts like for example Benzene, is internationally recognized as a cancer-causing agent. 

We can avoid many factors that harm our families by introducing House plants to our homes because of the benefits they will provide us. No-one wants to get sick due to their illnesses, such as asthma and other neurologic, reproductive, developmental, and respiratory disorders are all linked to exposure to VOC.

Did you know that the ozone can be infiltrate indoor's? Yes it can! its released by an simple Copy machine,laser printer and Indoor air purifiers. so imagine that? Poor indoor air quality can sicken and educating our selves with the importance of our indoor plants how they take in carbon dioxide and other gases from the air.
