Plantify Your Home

 My husband and I decided to detoxify our home.  After reading nonstop, about all of the possible dangerous chemicals in our home, we decided to go buy plants for starters.  If you can believe it, indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air.  Between cleaning products, aerosols, air fresheners, paints, carpet and disinfectants, they all cause harm.  Children and adults spend 90% of their time indoors, which means improving indoor quality should be top priority.  A great way to combat this problem is to cleanse your air with indoor plants.  All plants convert carbon dioxide to oxygen and some actually remove chemicals like benzene and formaldehyde from the air. The following is a list of plants that are known to function as efficient air detoxifiers and remove toxins from the air, as well as producing essential oxygen.  By the way all of these plants are low maintenance and high-efficiency.
