Indoor plants have always been popular for their calming effect, design elements and air purification. According to the Department of the Environment the average Australian spends about 90% of their time indoors so the quality of the air in our homes, offices and public buildings is hugely important.

Regrettably our indoor environments are heavily exposed to toxic compounds such as Formaldehyde which is leached into the home and workplace from furnishings, upholstery, synthetic building materials and cleaning products. Mould, pollen and bacteria are also common indoor air pollutants and even car exhaust particles make their way inside. Plants offer a great solution for improving air quality as they absorb tiny air particles as well as carbon monoxide, which is then processed into oxygen via photosynthesis.
Aside from cleansing the air, indoor plants are well known to simply make you feel good! Plants in offices or on your desk reduce mental fatigue and hospital patients with plants in their room have been known to have lower blood pressure and stress levels.
So, put a potted plant or two or three in your home – it’s an easy, inexpensive and rewarding way to enhance your well-being and a wonderful way to purify the air!
