Benefits of a Houseplant
Through photosynthesis, plants help us by taking the carbon dioxide from the air and releasing it back into the air as oxygen. Not only do plants produce oxygen, but they also can remove toxins from the air. Depending on how many plants you have indoors, and what types will depend on the quality of the air in your home.
Cleaning the air can also help reduce environmental toxins, like EMF radiation.
Even though there are benefits to improving air quality, houseplants are beautiful to look at, (mostly) easy to take care of, and can last a long time.
