The Best Air-Purifying Houseplants According To NASA [INFOGRAPHIC]

Good to know!

Way back in the glorious year of 1989, NASA researchers published a Clean Air study based on the work they’d done trying to figure out the best way to purify air in space stations. Knowing that astronauts are locked up in a tiny space with recycled air, they needed a solution to remove t0xic substances in the air like benzene and formaldehyde.

The study might be a bit old, but it is still the most comprehensive to date. The graphic below from Love the Garden gives you a great look at which houseplants filter the air the best.
