Earth Calendar July 24th and July 25th
House Plants do more than just brighten up a room with color and living energy. Along with being pleasing to the eye, they bring real health benefits to your body.
Not only do complaints about headaches, stress, circulation symptoms and colds decrease when indoor plants are present but also richly decorating a room with plants can help to keep the air clean. A NASA study found that plants will remove as much as 87% of indoor air pollutants within 24 hours. Plants clean the air naturally by taking pollutants in through their roots, leaves and the bacteria that live on them, converting these substances into food. This process is called photosynthesis, absorbing carbon dioxide and producing the oxygen we need. One medium to large plant will take care of a 10’x10’ space. Plants can remove a variety of toxic air emissions including ammonia, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and benzene.
