From vehicle fumes to industrial pollutants, it’s clear that there are plenty of toxins outside of our homes. But that doesn’t mean toxins are absent from the house. Some toxins that contribute to the need for purification in your home include: cleaning products, chemical flame retardants, fragrances, formaldehyde, and toxins carried in your shoes or clothes. Here are a few plants that can help alleviate toxins in the air of your home.
Rubber Plant: The Rubber Plant is effective in removing formaldehyde from indoor air. It’s easy to grow or maintain, so if you don’t have a green thumb – this is a great solution for you! It can grow up to 8 feet tall in the correct environment.
Ferns: Ferns are a popular houseplant that is known for removing indoor air pollutants and adding humidity to indoor air.
Bamboo: Bamboo palms are effective at removing chemical contaminants from the air like formaldehyde and benzene. They also help to keep the air moist, which is especially helpful during winter months when heaters can produce overly dry indoor air.
