According to  B.C. Wolverton, an environmental consultant and retired NASA scientist, research shows that live plants are highly recommended for indoor environments. In his book, "How to Grow Fresh Air'' (Penguin Books, 1999), he characterizes the usage of houseplants, when used strategically, filter many toxins from the air in homes, and businesses.

Plants act as natural filtration systems, by purifying the air from harmful toxins such as Benzene, Formaldehyde, and Trichloroethylene.  These toxins are found in paint, carpeting, furniture, plastic surfaces, particleboard, plywood, and many cleaning products used in tightly closed environments.  “Sick building syndrome” is a result of exposure to these indoor air contaminants.

Plants such as Philodendron species, Dracaena Fragans, Dracaena Deremensis, and Epipremnum Aureum play a major role in the reduction of these pollutants in tightly closed environments.  Green Fingers understands how important is to select the right plant, to perform its job and we make sure we do it right!
