Houseplants Clean the Air

We recently heard about the controversy surrounding a the safety of some laminate flooring from a popular American flooring company. It can be scary stuff to think that the beautiful flooring you recently installed may be harming your health. But it's not just laminate flooring that can release dangerous chemicals such as formaldehyde into the air you breathe: Lots of things release small amounts of pollutants into the air, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. These include insulation, paint, and even cleaning products such as dish soap and fabric softener. 

The good news is that houseplants pull those harmful, potentially cancer-causing chemicals right out of the air. Even better? Some of the easiest-to-grow houseplants are some the best at it, too!
