green your air--the plant for plant killers & green living lovers alike


Green Your Air has hit the nail on the head when it comes to detoxifying the air in your home naturally.

I had been searching high & low for green ways of removing toxins and chemicals from our little space--air purifiers are expensive, and most scented things make me nauseous (& they are only covering up smells---not removing). I'd known that certain plants filter out more toxins & junk than others (peace lily, and mums being on that list), but I did not know a wider variety of plants or what they filtered out specifically.

The ladies at Green Your Air, Maryam & Jennifer are dedicated to delivering only the best plants which they choose from a local family-owned nursery. Each plant on their menu filters at least one harmful chemical from the air--my favorite part about them (aside from how gorgeous they are!)
Another cool thing about these babies is the pots they come in are made of bamboo fiber, rice husks, wheat straw, and corn stalks---nontoxic, and biodegradable!

The ladies at Green Your Air were kind enough to send us the powerhouse plant which combines all of their featured plants into one---it filters out chemicals such as benzene, trichloroethylene, xylene and tuolene which can introduced into your home via paints, detergents, printers, carpets, floor coverings, particle board, and wall coverings.

& the best part about their plants?...
Almost impossible to kill!

a Green Your Air plant that is relentless, and so easy to care for--after months of having it green up our place it is still as gorgeous as the day it arrived!

Wow this is a great idea. We must get one! I had the same issue with the expense of the good filters but plants are a much prettier and quieter way to accomplish the same. Thanks for the tip!
