Breathe better with plants

Did you know that formaldehyde and benzene gases are the most toxic chemicals found in our everyday work places?  These gases are routinely released from furniture, carpeting and building materials.  Most office spaces are unventilated and do not allow these gases to escape. 

Research done by Nasa and The Associated Landscape Contractors of America and their Interior Plantscape Division determined that indoor plants can clean the pollutants in the air inside enclosed spaces.  Their experiments showed that plants that were sealed in Plexiglas containers removed 80% of the contaminants in the air within 24 hours.  The Plants for Clean Air Council recommends one potted plant for every 100 sq. ft. of floor space.
