Cleaner Indoor Air

Next time you don't know what to bring to a house warming or you need a simple gift remember to buy plants. The following easy to find plants have the obvious advantage of being a living thing and as a bonus they clean the air you breath. It is a well known fact that indoor air is three times more polluted. So here's the list of the miracle worker plants and what they filter:
- Aloe Vera (formaldehyde)

- Elephant Ear Philodendron (formaldehyde)

- English Ivy (benzene)

- Ficus (formaldehyde)

- Golden Photos (carbon monoxide, benzene, formaldehyde)

- Peace Lily (benzene, trichloroethylene)

- Spider Plant (carbon monoxide)

...

La próxima vez que no sepas que llevar de regalo a una casa o que necesites un regalo simple recuerda comprar plantas. Las siguientes son plantas fácil de encontrar que aparte de tener la obvia ventaja de ser seres vivos también limpian el aire que respiras. Es bien sabido que la calidad del aire que respiramos adentro está tres veces mas contaminado que el de afuera. Con eso en mente, acá va la lista de las plantas milagrosas y de lo que filtran:


- Aloe Vera (formaldehyde)
- Elephant Ear Philodendron/ Philodendron bipinnatifidum (formaldehyde)
- English Ivy / Hedera helix L (benzene)
- Ficus (formaldehyde)
- Golden Pothos / Epipremnum aureum 'Wilcoxii' (carbon monoxide, benzene, formaldehyde)
- Peace Lily / Spathiphyllum (benzene, trichloroethylene)
- Spider Plant / Chlorophytum comosum (carbon monoxide)

And they all cleanse the air of CO2 and add oxygen ( at least in the light!)
