Indoor Plants that Remediate The Air of Many Harmful Chemicals in Our Homes*
*Common examples of chemical remediation include:
1. Formaldehyde: This is a common chemical found in many household products such as cleaning agents, adhesives, and fabrics. Plants such as the Peace Lily, Spider Plant, and Golden Pothos are effective at removing formaldehyde from the air.
2. Benzene: This is a chemical found in cigarette smoke, gasoline, and synthetic fibers. Plants such as the English Ivy, Bamboo Palm, and Gerbera Daisy can help to remove benzene from indoor air.
3. Trichloroethylene: This is a chemical commonly found in printing inks, paints, and varnishes. Plants such as the Snake Plant, Spider Plant, and Peace Lily can help to remove trichloroethylene from indoor air.
4. Xylene: This is a chemical found in many household cleaning agents and paint thinners. Plants such as the Rubber Plant, Peace Lily, and Dracaena can help to remove xylene from indoor air.
Note: Please note that while these powerful air-cleaning plants are suitable for indoor use, some may require specific care, such as ample sunlight or humidity. Do your research to access the best results, keeping your family healthy for God’s glory.

Trees help reduce the effects of climate change
o Trees absorb carbon dioxide (CO2), removing and storing the carbon while releasing the oxygen back into the air.
o In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the amount of CO2 produced by a car driven 26,000 miles.
0 During one year, a mature tree will absorb more than 48 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen in exchange.
o Nearly 20 pounds of carbon dioxide are produced from burning one gallon of non-ethanol gasoline.
