Grow your own fresh air!


The benefits of outdoor plants are widely publicised. But what can plants do indoors?

People spend an average of 90% of their time indoors, where air may be even more polluted than it is outside.
Everyday furnishings and objects such as carpeting, plastics, rubber, cleaning substances, paints, inks and even paper release toxins into the air. But plants have the remarkable ability to filter out these chemicals, literally breathing them away!

Commonly available houseplants such as Peace Lilies, Gerberas, Chrysanthemums, Spider Plants, Ivy and many others are effective toxin filters, removing chemicals such as formaldehyde and carbon monoxide.

At the same time, plants convert carbon dioxide to oxygen. Increased oxygen enables humans to be more focussed, creative, attentive, happier and, most importantly, healthier.

In business settings plants have been shown to increase productivity, occupancy and retention rates and reduce absenteeism.

Green Plants for Green Buildings has further information about the benefits of plants indoors.
