Plants Detoxify and Generate Oxygen


People inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide.  Plants absorb

carbon dioxide and toxins, and through photosynthesis, remove toxins and release pure oxygen, purifying the air.


Having plants makes you healthier, happier, and even smarter!


According to the  NASA Clean Air Study,,  we can increase air quality by adding plants. Plants detoxify air, purify it and add oxygen. Indoor plants make a positive impact on the reduced ventilation and toxic air contaminants found in typical offices. See the NASA Study to see specific toxins removed! Its results suggest that certain common indoor plants may provide a natural way of removing toxic agents such as benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene from the air, helping neutralize the effects of sick building syndrome.


Having indoor plants in your office has been proven to have many benefits, including making you a happier and healthier person. A research study published in 2015 by the Environmental Health Perspectives states that cognitive function scores are dramatically improved in buildings with below-average air pollution. Plants clean the air by taking in dangerous airborne toxins and chemicals and producing oxygen. Indoor plants have also been proven to:


•             Boost productivity
