As usual, I like to keep Friday posts short and happy, so we can all start off our weekend happy 🙂
Therefore today I’m just going to mention something that personally makes me smile, especially when I do a good job and I don’t kill it (I’ve had more than a few accidents): Plants!
Apparently, they are more than just pretty decoration, because NASA did a study way long ago in the 80’s and proved that certain houseplants could remove volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) from the air. I had to look up what VOCs are and where they are found and in conclusion, they’re in your house!
In addition, they help in relaxation by softening the harshness of furniture and interior decor. They are soothing to the eye, and are a beautiful way to include color in your house.
Here are a few of my still-alive-and-kicking plants!
You can get many more details on which household plants are the most beneficial here.
P.S: VOCs include substances like formaldehyde (present in rugs, vinyl, cigarette smoke and grocery bags), benzene and trichloroethylene (both found in man-made fibers, inks, solvents and paint)
