Houseplants

There’s been lots of interest recently in the benefits to health and well-being that houseplants can bring to the home and the workplace.

Studies at the Agricultural University of Norway document that using plants in interior spaces decreases the incidence of dry skin, colds, sore throats and dry coughs.

And at NASA, following studies looking at the potential benefits of houseplants in sealed environments (such as space stations), found that certain houseplants were very effective at removing pollutants from the atmosphere.

So for a healthy environment that improves your well-being living plants offer a very cost-effective solution.
