We spend 90% of our time indoors, about 22 hours a day, which is why we are the “Indoor Generation”. Home, school, office, gym, all closed environments, often poorly lit and poorly ventilated, where the air inside can reach 5 times more pollution than outside.
Air quality is fundamental for our health and the inclusion of green areas could represent a valid solution:
• plants absorb CO2 during photosynthesis, reducing the concentration of carbon dioxide.
• plants produce steam and regulate humidity, but they also absorb heat and noise, and filter the air by neutralising harmful substances.
• plants reduce the amount of dust in indoor environments by 20%.
• plants are able to break down many harmful particles, in particularly the volatile organic ones, cause of headaches and tiredness, eye and respiratory tract irritations.
