Houseplants are a great and easy way to purify the air in both your home and office by reducing carbon dioxide levels, as well as reducing levels of dust and certain pollutants.

According to a study by NASA, using 15 to 18 good sized houseplants in 6 inch (15 cm) to 8 inch (20 cm) containers will improve the air quality in an average 1,800 square-foot house. The more vigorously these plants grow, the better job they will do at cleaning the air!

Houseplants not only look good, but they help us feel good too! They have been known to reduce stress and boost one’s mood, concentration and creativity.
