Indoor Plants for Air Filtration

Indoor air quality is often worse than outdoor urban air. Plants are a natural air filter.

indoor plants reduce air pollution for health "Plants not only beautify our environment, they make it healthier both inside and out," reports Botanicare Plant Services, a greater Los Angeles area indoor plant nursery and consultant.

Properly designed indoor plantings can provide an inexpensive, refreshingly low- tech means of removing pollutants from the air in commercial and residential settings.

One potted plant per 100 square feet of floor space can help clean the air in the average home or office. Research conducted by NASA recommends that eight plants in the average size home, and considerably more in the office environment where airborne pollutants are greater. In more sophisticated approaches, new building designs can incorporate plant-filtering systems that are built into atriums, lobbies and walkways.

Pollutants from formaldehyde to trichloroethylene...and many nasty pollutants in-between can be filtered by a careful selection of indoor plants selected for their air filtering properties.
