According to the American Society of Horticultural Science, the quality of air indoors is quickly becoming an important health concern, “particularly in the United States and other developed countries where people may spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors.” The good news is there is an easy and decorative way to influence our indoor air quality- houseplants. Houseplants do more than look good in your home or office; they are busy filtering our air. In addition to tending to their own needs, plants offer us a lot of benefits too. Wondering about incorporating plants into your home or office? Native Roots in Durango, Colorado is here to give you the scoop on the benefits of houseplants!
