Plants to Purify Your Air
Did you know that the air within your home could be eerily similar to that of a space station? The connecting factor is this – the stagnant air, both in your home and the space station, can be a breeding ground for sickness. And seeing as how most people spend about 90% of their time inside, it’s easy to see how this could be a problem! Breathing contaminated air can not only irritate your nasal passages, but it can also cause headaches and sleeping problems.
