How To Use Indoor Plants As Air FiltersMarch 16th, 2012 | Posted by in Eco-Friendly
The sootiness and serenity of forest air is truly a heaven gift and it cannot be replaced by any air freshener. The scent of forest is produced by decomposition and constant circulation of oxygen and carbon dioxide. Our homes has become concrete jungles and some of the airborne chemical cocktail inside our home often are benzene, trichloroethylene (TCE) and formaldehyde. All the gases are potent environmental pollutants and likely carcinogens in humans. Keeping indoor plants not only adds a nice green touch to our homes but also effective filters for pollutants like carbon monoxide. Some of the beneficial plants that can be used as air filters in homes are Aloe vera, Chinese Evergreen, Bamboo Palm, Green Spider Plant, Pot Mum/Florists' Chrysanthemum, Janet Craig, Marginata, Mass cane/Corn Plant, Warneckii, Gerbera Daisy/African daisy, English Ivy/Common Ivy, Elephant Ear Philodendron, Heart Leaf Philodendron, Lacy Tree Philodendron, Mother in law's tongue, Golden Pothos and Peace Lily/Mauna Loa. Indoor plants don't just look great but they can help make your house or office a more healthy place to live and work in!
