Plantas que limpian el aire de casa



The NASA Clean Air Study[1] has been led by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in association with the Associated Landscape Contractors of America (ALCA). Its results suggest that certain common indoor plants may provide a natural way of removing toxic agents such as benzeneformaldehyde and trichloroethylene from the air, helping neutralize the effects of sick building syndrome.
