Cleaning our Air

We've got a basement full of succulents (for the winter), but didn't have a single houseplant in our main living spaces. I love sharing our home with air purifying plants, and having them brightening up our rooms and adding some more green to our home. I chose plants that I like the look of, which aren't toxic to pets or children if someone ends up gnawing on a fallen leaf. It was a perfect activity for a snowy winter day, and the kids had a great time re-potting and finding homes for them all.
