Houseplants provide fresh indoor air all year


During winter months, indoor spaces can feel stuffy and stagnant. I can’t wait until the first signs of spring when windows and doors can be opened and cool breezes allowed to flow. Another solution for better air quality is houseplants.

Furnishings, upholstery, cleaning products, bacteria, pollen and more emit toxic compounds causing invisible indoor air pollution. Plants purify by absorbing particulates from the air while taking in carbon dioxide then processed into oxygen. In addition, microorganisms present in potting soil help to clean air.

Some ideal, decorative choices include English ivy, bamboo palm, mother-in-law’s tongue and spider plant.
