This little plant can reduce the toxins in your home by 85%

Purchasing expensive electronics or isn’t the only way rid your home of harmful toxins, some house plants may have similar abilities. The “paints, carpeting, plastic toys, cleaning agents, and furniture” in our homes can all contain harmful toxins. Toxins in our home can lead to medical issues such as eye and nose irritation, and even cause asthma. NASA scientists studied plants that were known to reduce toxins, and created the Clairy. The Clairy is a household plant placed in a pot that has a fan attached to it. Biologists at the University of Florence found that the Clairy was “able to reduce the amount of pollutants in the air by 85% on average.” The product was launched on Kickstarter.com, and quickly surpassed its goal of $100,000. Manufacturers hope to have the Clairy on the market by January of 2017, and it is expected to retail for $199.
