Latest research shows how indoor plants can be used to remove toxic petrol vapours & indoor air contaminants.

ο»Ώ
The World Health Organization estimates 6.7 million people die prematurely worldwide due to air pollution.
Since people across the globe spend about 90 per cent of their time indoors, including in offices, homes or schools, experts have called for adopting new strategies to improve indoor air quality.
A small green wall containing a range of indoor plants can effectively remove toxic air pollutants from the surrounding air in just eight hours, according to a new study done by Ambius in collaboration with researchers from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in Australia.
Studies have shown that plants can remove a wide range of indoor air contaminants, this latest study is the first to show they can clean up petrol vapours – one of the largest sources of toxic compounds in buildings worldwide. Many buildings are also exposed to toxic petrol fumes from nearby roads and highways.
