Cleaner Household Air with Plants


According to Susan McGinnis, in her article, Breathe Easier with Purifying Plants, featured in Kiwi Magazine,, choosing the right indoor plants can be an effective way to combat indoor toxins and chemicals that can interfere with our breathing.  This can be especially important if you or your family members have allergies and or asthma.   Instead of investing in an expensive air purifier, which also runs on electricity and must be kept on all of the time, the author suggests trying out one or more of the plants on her list, which include spider and other common plants.   She also lists some of the common major offenders to our indoor air quality, such as paints, carpeting and adhesives.

  5. Using plants to improve indoor air quality is a great idea. Not only do plants help clean the air, but they also bring life to your home. It is good to know which plants clean the air more effectively.

  6. I never considered plants as an alternative solution to air purifiers, very interesting. The link to the article is priceless. Good share.

  7. I would love to go wild with indoor plants. I can’t seem to keep them alive for very long. I guess you have to have that special touch. Of course if my plants could talk, I would be in big trouble.
