pollution which in turn will remove the need of air purifiers
If pollutants are removed then air will be fresh and free of toxic Volatile Organic
Compounds(VOC) and other harmful chemicals commonly found in room air.
The need of air conditioning will also reduce as the appliance is used to reduce
temperature of the room by reducing humidity.
If the air has toxics then air will be humid as it provides surface area to the water
molecules and moisture can trap heat.
As a result air temperature become high. So when AC s are used it forces the inner
warm air to outside and circulates the same air through a coolant and through multiple
filters and release the same air to the room.
As this air has minimal toxins the room moisture can not effect the room temperature
and as a result air become fresh and the room temperature get reduced.
ALL THE IMAGES USED IN THIS ARTICLE ARE COLLECTED FROM INTERNET.
SOME OF THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE PLANTS ARE ALSO RETRIEVED FROM DIFFERENT WEBSITES.
If the same work of removing toxins from the air can be carried out by plants, then there

appliances from our life then we can save not only electricity but also carbon generation
thus making our life sustainable.
