Detoxify with Indoor Plants
Indoor plants like ferns, palms, and orchids can do wondrous things. Not only do they add colour and texture to offices, they also help us feel at one with nature, while pulling harmful pollutants out of the air. The humble fern’s ability to combat indoor air pollution was first discovered by NASA in the 1980s. Researchers determined that 50 types of ordinary houseplants can absorb volatile organic compounds (VOC’s).
Gaseous chemicals like formaldehyde and benzene have been classified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as known human carcinogens and have been found in a number of household items including paint, pressed-wood furniture, plastic bags, printer ink, carpeting, and household cleaning products. According to the EPA volatile organic compounds are one of a variety of pollutants that are currently so pervasive, that indoor air is up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Adding houseplants will help you to detoxify your office and home.
