Plants that will keep your home and office cool this summer
With the temperature shooting up to an infinite degree at early April, looks like a very hot season is waiting for us. One of the most important reasons for this, is less trees and more wagons. It’s high time for us to get back to the roots and opt for organic things, conventional means of getting jobs done and planting more trees for a better greener society. Harpreet Ahluwalia, an environmental expert, throws light on how we can convert our homes, offices and schools into eco friendly cool places just by bringing in some air purifying plants.
Aloe vera: Having an aloe vera plant will not only come in use for nasty sunburns, it is also effective at cooling air temperature as well as removing pollutants and harmful virus from the air. This plant is well-known for its great medicinal benefits. It helps in protecting our house from overheating.
Areca Palm Tree: One of the most popular living room plants often considered to be a decorative house plant that also acts as a natural air humidifier. The areca palm also helps in removing benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene from the air.
Ficus Tree: Commonly known as a weeping fig, helps in keeping the air temperature cool as well as reduces air pollution and improves air quality.
Fern: This plant helps to not only cool and humidify the air, but like aloe vera, it is essential for cleaning formaldehyde out of the air. It is one of the most effective air-purifying plants among all.
Golden Pothos: The golden pothos is a great plant as it requires little light and care, and it will keep your air cool and purified.
