The current pandemic the world is facing has us all wondering how we can live a healthier lifestyle now, and even after the corona chaos has vanished. Eating a well-balanced diet and exercising frequently are two ways to improve our overall health, but we can create a healthy atmosphere and reduce stress levels by adding lush foliage to our homes. Houseplants add beauty to the spaces that they are in, and many of them will purify the air in your home. We spoke with Juliette Vassilkioti, President and Co-founder of My City Plants, and she provided a list of gorgeous greenery that naturally cleanses toxins in the air.
