20 Best Plants for Cleaning Indoor Air

Clean your air with plants!

Air-purifying plants are wonders of nature—these plants can actually cleanse the air of your home of toxins. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, mounting scientific evidence shows that the air in our homes is “likely to be more polluted than the air outside, even in the largest and most industrialized cities,” meaning these plants are needed more than ever.

It’s no secret that plants keep the air fresh. However, some houseplants have additional air-purifying benefits, making them a popular addition to home and office design. Plants help boost your mood and productivity while supporting your home’s HVAC system. Plus, they help reduce stress too!

Recognized by NASA as one of the best houseplants, the crane lily or peace lily purifies the air by removing 60% of the pollutants in the air. These tropical houseplants break down and balance harmful pollutants like benzene, carbon monoxide, xylene, and formaldehyde in your indoor air.
