NASA compiled the first list of plants that filter the air. It was part of the NASA Clean Air Study, which focuses on gathering research of ways to clean the air in space stations. All plants release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, but what makes this list of plants special is their ability to eliminate significant amounts of benzene, formaldehyde, and/or trichloroethylene. According to NASA researchers, the most efficient air cleaning is accomplished with (at least) one plant per 1000 square feet of indoor home or office space.

In addition to being beautiful, having a plant in your home may provide a variety of health benefits, including:

  1. • Remove Airborne Contaminant
  2. • Improve Mental Health
  3. • Help Fight Colds
  4. • Provide Cleaner Air
