Since the air in our cities is becoming more and more polluted, a lot of families have been purchasing air purifiers in order to clean up the air inside their homes. While air purifiers are sometimes needed for health reasons, most of us can just hack those air purifiers and use plants instead.

We've covered a sort of air purifier that used a plant in order to function, this is just so much simpler. This also comes with a lot of scientific proof, as NASA is the one did the study.

House plants can purify and rejuvenate air within our houses and workplaces, safeguarding us all from any side effects connected with prevalent toxins such as formaldehyde, ammonia and also benzene.

That's not all. There are other sources cited in the post over at Air Purifier Review. With this research covered, Air Purifier Review lists 15 of the plants best suited to replace your air purifiers. The bamboo palm and rubber plant are some of our favorites and they rate pretty high in these studies. NASA recommends that there should be a six-inch plant for every 100 sq feet of living space.

If your green thumb fails, alternatively you could always purchase the Andrea Air Purifier.
