The theme for Clean Air Day 2022 is taking steps to improve health. Indoor plants naturally remove CO2 from the air, offering an abundance of health benefits.

How do plants clean the air?

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the importance of clean indoor air has never been more important. High levels of irritants in the atmosphere can cause people to feel unwell, leading to headaches, nausea, sore throats, and dry eyes. 

Plants offer a natural way to remove irritants from their air, making a clear link between plants and air quality. By removing irritants, plants leave people feeling healthier and more alert, all while creating a welcoming environment.

What other benefits to indoor plants offer?

A 2010 UTS research study found that introducing plants to the workplace lowered tension and anxiety levels by 37% while reducing feelings of anger by around 44%. Additionally, fatigue was shown to have been reduced by 38%.
