Air Purifying Plants

Plants are natural air purifiers. We put out a heck of a lot of carbon, and all plants will help reduce that to some degree.

We put out a few other notable bad chemicals in the course of daily living - ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, and xylene. Check here for some plants that can clean your air!
