Best air-filtering houseplants, according to NASA
NASA did a study to find out which plants were best to filter the air of the space station, and the agency's findings are available to all.
Having good indoor air quality is very important, especially since many of us spend so much time inside.
If these plants are good enough to filter the air of the space station, surely they're good enough for your home.
Here are houseplants which are best to filter the air (not only producing oxygen from CO2, but also absorbing benzene, formaldehyde and/or trichloroethylene.)
