I have always thought that plants were great for our air because they help with oxygen. As I have been reading, bringing plants into your home is Great for air purification. Plants remove harmful formaldehyde; philodendrons remove formaldehyde and benzene; spider plants and ALOE VERA PLANTS are also effective for removing indoor pollutants.
Plants are very beneficial to your health and environment. Whether in your home or your office, plants can be used to improve air quality. Plants are able to absorb pollutants from the air, making it cleaner and more pure.
One study found that houseplants reduce some health problems more than 30 percent. According to NASA scientists, houseplants can actually extract volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) from the air. According to one study, one six-inch houseplant per 100 square feet of indoor area acts as a decent filter for the air, and another U.S. government study found that 15 to 18 houseplants in six- to eight-inch containers helps to improve the air quality in an 1,800-square-foot house.
