‘If man is to move into closed environments, on Earth or in space, he must take along nature’s life support system’- Dr B.C. Wolverton, NASA
With everything that’s going on around us, it’s safe to say good health is at the top of everyone’s priorities right now. Especially since all of us are either stuck at home or trying our best to, we should take extra care to make sure the environment indoors is safe and healthy. Plants make a great case for themselves here- and why wouldn’t they? They have multiple scientifically-backed health benefits, they teach us how to nurture life with patience, and they transform spaces with their unmatched organic beauty.
NASA had released a report on ‘Interior Landscape Plants for Indoor Air Pollution Abatement’ (whew, that’s a mouthful!) back in September 1989 which quantified the power of certain indoor plants in improving air quality. You can read the report here. If you aren’t savvy towards reading scientific articles, fret not- our list of the most potent air-purifying plants (along with their care instructions) is here to help you! When you are done choosing an air-purifying plant for your home, remember to head over to the House of Sasha website and select an equally attractive planter for your new leafy friend!
