Clean Your Indoor Air With Plants

 We often forget how polluted our indoor air is, it’s not the same reminder we get while looking at the air over the city. I have several air purifiers in the house since the air in the closet large city can get quite bad.

After finding the information on how house plants clean the indoor air on Pinterest, it made me think about the air quality where I lived, real-time. I was pleasantly surprised considering it’s close to 100 degrees F.

This is a graph is from aqicn.org/statistics/, this is a few examples for Texas where I live in America. The closest airport to me is Denton Airport South, Texas.

I have two pets and won’t be able to incorporate one of these into my air cleaning methods, good thing I have air purifies. 

Please keep in mind several of these plants are poisonous to pets. Plants are a natural air cleaner that doesn’t cost anything except the initial investment and your time.
