Clean+Green Decorating

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetThe boys and I went with our friends to the botanical gardens today. I love it there. I noted to Casey how much I loved the smell of all the plants in the atrium.

Green Decorating

House plants are a must for several reasons:

  • They are easy to care for, hard to kill. Most house plants take in little water, like succulents and philodendrons
  • They add life and color to rooms at a low cost
  • They remove pollutants from the air, even harmful chemicals and VOCs
  • They can multitask, i.e. aloe for burns
  • They are GREAT for those of us who are not outside plant people. (I envy those with beautiful yards. It’s one of my long-term goals, but sadly, we are poor yard folks. House cleaning barter anyone??)
