With a Little Help from my Plants

As environmental scientist B.C. Wolverton explains in his book "How to Grow Fresh Air: 50 House Plants that Purify Your Home or Office," American building industry began hermetically sealing homes in the 1970s to reduce energy costs and increase energy efficiency. This led to poorly ventilated homes and an increase in respiratory problems caused by poor indoor air quality. Indoor air pollution, as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports, is one of the top five threats to public health, and the air inside our homes can be up to ten times more polluted than the air outdoors. While air purifiers can help reduce toxins and harmful particles from the air, houseplants can also be of great use and are an attractive complement to your Rabbit Air. Besides the fact that plants convert carbon dioxide to oxygen through photosynthesis, hey also remove harmful elements such as trichloroethylene, benzene, and formaldehyde from the air.
