Plants that clean the air

Our homes are full of things that give off volatile organic compounds (VOC's) which are harmful to our health.  Sources of VOC's include furniture, fabrics, cleaning products, paint and carpet.  The good news is that there are houseplants that clean VOC's from the air.

I found this slideshow online that is very informative about different houseplants that clean the air and what substances they remove from the air.  Click the link in the photo caption below to check it out.
