Breath Easy, The 5 office plants that clean your air and look good while doing it.

It’s no secret that the air quality in your office can have a significant impact on the productivity of your staff. Poor air quality can lead to fatigue, illness, and difficulty concentrating, all of which can hinder employee performance. Fortunately, there are plants that you can keep in your office that will help to improve air quality and keep your staff productive. Here are five of the best plants for cleaning the air in an office environment.

Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)

The spider plant is one of the most popular houseplants around and for good reason – it is easy to care for, resilient, and has excellent air-purifying qualities. Not only does it absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen into the atmosphere, but it also filters out certain toxins such as formaldehyde and xylene from the air. As an added bonus, spider plants are also known to reduce airborne mould spores!


Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)

The peace lily is another popular houseplant with incredible air-purifying capabilities. In addition to removing toxins from the air such as benzene, trichloroethylene, formaldehyde, and acetone, this plant also has an impressive ability to increase humidity levels in its vicinity – perfect for dry office environments! Plus it’s beautiful white blossoms make a great addition to any office or workspace.


Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema)

This tropical evergreen is one of the best plants for removing toxins from indoor spaces due to its large surface area of leaves which filter out pollutants like benzene and formaldehyde from the air. Chinese evergreens are low maintenance and don’t require much sunlight or water; making them a great choice for busy offices with limited natural light sources.


Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis miller) 

Aloe vera isn’t just great at treating sunburns – this succulent is also an effective natural cleanser that helps remove toxins like formaldehyde from indoor spaces while releasing oxygen into the atmosphere at night time – making it a great option if you want to improve your office’s overnight air quality too! Plus it looks fantastic sitting on desks or window sills.


Rubber Plant (Ficus elastica robusta)

Rubber plants aren’t just aesthetically pleasing – they also have some impressive air-purifying properties! They excel at filtering out pollutants such as benzene and formaldehyde from indoor spaces while also releasing oxygen during daylight hours – perfect for keeping fresh oxygen circulating throughout your workspace during working hours!
