Mother nature provides everything that man needs to survive in this world. Air, water, food and shelter are the four basic needs that we need.
Once our basic needs are met, we can start to impact the world that we live in. This has happened over the millennia, with ever growing sophistication.
Today we live a world where you can instantly connect with someone halfway around the world with a click of a mouse.
While this technological wizardry has vastly improved the human condition, it has produced some unintended consequences that were not easily foreseen.
The technological revolution has made us a society that has become increasingly sendentary and inactive. Work is no longer tied to working the land or even manual labor. Some jobs have even been taken over by robots!
Today’s economy is largely run from the comfort of the office or home. White-collar professions such as Information Technology and consultants have created over 713,000 jobs in 2014 alone!
This means more people working in enclosed spaces for longer periods of time, exposed to germs, dust, pollen and other contaminants.
Indoor pollution is a real phenomenon that affects millions of people everyday. This is a problem that isn’t talked about on the evening news on a daily basis.
This isn’t even discussed around the dinner table. Indoor air pollution does more damage to you than you might think.
Indoor air pollution can cause health problems for people with allergies, asthma and weakened immune systems. Here are a few statistics to consider when thinking about the effects of indoor pollution:
- 25 million people had asthma in 2009 vs. 20 million in 2001
- Asthma cost the US $3,300 in medical expenses and missed work
- Asthma cost grew from $53 billion in 2002 to $56 billion in 2007
- 3,404 people died from asthma in 2010
- 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. Allergy is the 5th leading chronic illness in America
- The annual cost of allergies is $14.5 billion each year
- Indirect cost such as missed work and productivity account for $2.2 billion of the annual cost of allergies
As you can see there is a significant economic impact from indoor air pollution. With this in mind what can you do to improve your indoor environment?
Mother Nature To The Rescue
The only thing that you have to do to improve the indoor air quality of your home or business is to have more plants inside. It is as simple as that.
Plants cleanse the air we breathe and having more of them only maximizes the air scrubbing powers that plants have.
These wonder plants can reduce the level of toxic substances such as benzene, formaldehyde and carbon monoxide that can be found in carpets, paints and office equipment.
Here is a short list of flowers that you can buy to clean up your home or office:
- Devils Ivy
- Bamboo Palms
- Flamingo Flower
- English Ivy
