Green ThumbNASA recommends one indoor plant for every 100 square feet of living space to improve indoor air quality. Participate in the Adopt-a-Plant for Your Classroom campaign, and bring some nature indoors!

Studies show that indoor air can be up to ten times more polluted than outside air. (Source: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency). For children, who spend an average of 30 hours per week inside school buildings, the potential hazards of poor indoor air quality are pervasive. No matter the season, you can still introduce your students to plant life by participating in the Adopt-a-Plant for Your Classroom campaign.
