We use plants to beautify and enrich our surroundings, environments and lives. Some plants do not only play these roles. They help enhance our environment with positive energy while purifying the air. In a study by The American Society for Horticultural Science, researchers found that “Because indoor air pollution extensively affects developing countries, using plants as a mitigation method could serve as a cost-effective tool in the developing world where expensive pollution mitigation technology may not be economically feasible.”
