Outside In

You probably know someone who has a gazillion plants in his house. We’re talking jungle city. Every time you walk in, it feels so…well, strange.

But, not nearly as strange as it feels when he walks into your house and can’t breathe.

Get some plants. As you may remember from high-school science classes, plants produce oxygen, which is a real bonus during winter months when your house is closed up tight. Not only that, but according to a NASA study, house plants actually help remove toxins from the air.

Ideally, you should have one plant for every 100 square feet of space, or about 15 to 18 plants in an 1800 square foot home, but if that number sounds overwhelming, start with one or two. It’s certainly better than none.
