 Earth Ethics Institute New Sustainability Resource


Plants and Indoor Air Quality
Find out how plants help keep office air healthy
15 plants have been identified as great air purifiers

Projects like installing new carpet and painting walls can release chemicals that pollute indoor air. These are called VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), they’re chemicals used to manufacture and maintain building materials, interior furnishing, cleaning products and personal care products.

Luckily, some houseplants moonlight as efficient purifiers. For the best results, put as many plants as you can care for in the rooms you use most.
