Back in 1989, NASA conducted a ‘Clean Air Study’ that looked at how plants can naturally filter indoor pollution. The study was in response to the ‘sick building syndrome’ and produced incredible results. In fact, NASA researchers identified specific plants that could filter out harmful chemicals such as benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia. The study concluded that indoor pollution can be dramatically reduced by introducing ‘nature’s life support system’ – plants!
Over the last year, we’ve become educated about how pure air impacts our immune system. With this in mind, here are the top 18 indoor plants that NASA recommended. Why not consider these for purifying the air inside your home, office, retail spaces, fitness, wellness and yoga studios!
