Houseplants are great for adding some color and style to your house, or making it feel like a home. And we all know green plants also produce fresh air. But plants do more than that, they even filter and purify air, although they don’t all do it equally.

Our air is full of toxins and pollutants which need to be filtered out to keep us healthy. NASA thus conducted a Clean Air Study to find out which common houseplants filter our air. Love The Garden then made an easy infographic for you to see what your plants do.

The next time you go shopping for plants, keep this infographic in mind for a healthy home. So here is the inforgraphic you’re waiting for:
