Home Tip Tuesday: Benefits of Indoor Gardens

Image
Right now in your home, at least three carcinogenic chemicals are polluting the air you breathe. Benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene are frequently used in the manufacturing of common household items such as furniture, flooring and decorative accessories. The materials, paints, glues, and finishes used to make synthetic substances can emit toxins into the air, sometimes for several years. This process is known as off-gassing.  Indoor plants can fight the harmful effects of off-gassing. Some plants are able to remove up to 90% of the toxic chemicals in the air in only one day. But cleaner air isn’t the only benefit or growing plants indoors.
