TED Talk: Grow Your Own Fresh Air with Plants


Improve Indoor Air Quality with Plants
Kamal Meattle gave a talk at the TED conference about air-filtering plants (more on that below). Matthew had access to the slides and covered the talk here, but we didn't have access to the video back then. It has now been released, so here it is for your viewing pleasure. More about our coverage of air-filtering plants below.For more on air-filtering plants, check out the list of the best air-filtering plants according to NASA, and there's also a whole book on air-filtering plants by one of the NASA study authors.
