Double Duty

The air you breathe indoors may not be as healthy as you think. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, organic chemicals commonly found in your home or office such as paints, disinfectants, cosmetics and fuels emit chemicals called volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These VOCs are the leading cause of sick building syndrome, a health threat that leads to headaches, skin irritations, hypersensitivity and more.



Based on two scientific studies, one by NASA, and a follow up by Dr. B.C. Wolverton, there are certain plants that remove thousands of micro-grams of these VOC's a day.

Some of them include plants Everything Grows offers such as the Dracaena Marginata, the Dracaena Janet Craigi, the Dracaena Warneckii, and the Bamboo Palm.  See our plant catalog to see what these plants look like.





The next time you're thinking about buying plants for the office or for home remember they are on double duty, not only do they look good, but, they are good for your health as well!
