Going green is a global movement that all of us should participate in and one of the habits that we could cultivate is growing plants! 

Having an indoor plant does not just enhance our living spaces visually. It can also boost our mood, reduce fatigue and lower our stress and anxiety.

Some common plants that can tremendously improve your health are snake plants, bamboo palm plants, and zz plants, also known as zamioculcas plants.

Snake plants may look artificial due to the standing posture of its foliage, but its benefits are far from phoney. It is a natural air purifier and helps humidify the air. Similar to snake plants, bamboo palm plants are also good in emitting moisture. 

All three plants are known for removing toxic pollutants such as carbon dioxide, benzene and other cancer-causing toxins from the air. The zz plant is highly adaptable and can flourish in low and high lighting.

Here are five places where you can get these indoor plants!
