“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.” ~ Frank Lloyd Wright
Air purifiers have become a necessity in a polluted city like New York. Unfortunately, quality purifiers can run anywhere between $300 - $1000 before you include the maintenance costs. Ouch!
The good news is that there is a much easier and more affordable way to combat the toxic compounds from both indoor and outdoor pollutants and the answer is found in the natural world – PLANTS.
Not only do plants significantly improve the air quality in our home but they help us focus and relax by reducing stress and mental fatigue.
Got a “black thumb”? Fret not. One of the mightiest air purifying plants is also the hardest to kill. We all know that ALOE VERA is fantastic for its copious skincare benefits but did you know it is also one of the most effective air cleaners on the planet?
Aloe helps clear toxic indoor chemicals like formaldehyde and benzene right out of your air.
If you happen to be a lucky green thumber, planting a lush bamboo palm will help you eliminate all the nasty gases and petrochemicals like trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene and ammonia out of your home.
Palms are super affordable, fairly low-maintenance and difficult to kill.
And in case you should worry about your kitty playfully gnawing on its leaves, fret not. Bamboo palm is non-toxic to pets. #purrr
I noticed great improvement in my indoor air-quality when I added this beautiful bundle of aloe and this gorgeous palm (pictured below).
I hope that you too will plantify your life and let me know what plants you love best in the comment section.
Happy air cleaning, my friends, and cheers to better breathing and cleaner greener living! Aaaaahhhh
