Plant a Little Indoor Green

Green Plants are a wonderful decorating touch but more important, they make a considerable contribution to the air in a healthy home, and can help us keep the office environment more cheerful throughout the year.

The facts are that, carpets, paints, adhesives, upholstery fabrics and fillings all give off chemical gasses and, as we build houses- and our office buldings- tighter and insulate better, these gasses build up in interior spaces where they can cause a number of sensitivity reactions such as watery eyes, irritation of nose and lungs, nausea and various allergic responses.

A few plants in the office or at home will increase air quality as well as make the space more visually attractive. House plants are cheap and good for the environment.
