We all want to breathe clean air. It makes us feel less stressed, fresher and more perceptive. Plants look great, too. Sure, we could buy an air purifier, but why spend money on a manufactured product that requires electricity to operate when you could let Mother Nature do all the work for you — free of charge? A fresh plant in your home or on your desk at work is a cheaper, greener (and quieter) solution to cleaner air. There are even certain types of plants that work to filter compounds and allergens better than others.
- Gerbera Daisy
- Christmas Cactus
- English Ivy
- Peace Lily
