Clean Your Work Air!

Plants clean the air! That is why sometimes when we buy carbon credits to offset our traveling, the credits are actual tree plantings. But in an indoor environment we are often beset with unhealthy airborn chemicals such as Benzyne, Carbon Monoxide and Formldehyde!

Nasa has published a study that quantifies how plants clean the air and which plants are most effective at doing this and concluded that the placement of plants may prevent "sick building syndrome". The recommendation is one 6 inch plant for every 100 sq feet of space.

Here is a link to the study http://www.zone10.com/tech/NASA/Fyh.htm
