A great benefit from getting organized is a cleaner home. We all know how great it feels to come home to a clean, safe and relaxing environment. If you are looking to bring a little extra happiness into your home, I recommend freshening up your life with a beautiful houseplant!
According to sustainablebabysteps.com, harmful toxins such as benzene, trichloroethylene and formaldehyde are often present in the air in our home. What you may not know is that there are many house plants out there that have been proven to create cleaner air in your home. NASA scientist have found that some plants can even “remove 90% of chemicals in the air in only twenty-four hours”!
Check out this list of 19 houseplants that could “help decrease your risk of cancers, asthma, allergies, auto-immune disorders and other diseases.”
Not only can plants create a healthier environment for you and your family, they also bring vibrancy and life to the indoors! One of my favorite houseplant that loves a good window is my Umbrella Tree, which also happens to remove benzene, a carcinogenic substance, from the air.
