Purify your air with Plants

This binder is about the green way you can clean the air in your home. Some plants are excellent at cleaning pollution from indoor air. Dr. Bill Wolverton published his research at NASA to find plants that clean the air. These plants absorb toxic chemicals like benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene which are commonly used in the production of clothing, furniture, mattresses, carpets, plastics and printing. One healthy plant can clean a 100 sq.ft. room of 87% of these contaminants in 24 hours. (try the Rubbert plant or Peace Lily).

Check out his inexpensive, well-illustrated, and extremely practical book – “How to Grow Fresh Air: 50 House Plants that Purify Your Hofme of Office.”

To open the binder, click on the link below. Once the binder is launched, click through the tabs and subtabs in the binder below to view all the different websites that talk about plants and their purification value. Some sites will list plants that you can buy for your home.

LiveBinder It update!

We are happy to announce that the LiveBinder It bookmarklet tool has been updated.

Here are some of the changes in this release:

Auto-open:

Now when you add a link to a binder through the LiveBinder It bookmarklet tool, the binder will automatically open so that you can see where the link was added in your binder.

Non-conforming Links:

Some users have come across links that override the binder trying to open the link in its own browser window.  LiveBinder has now corrected that problem by adding the URL link to the tab page and launching a separate window for the web page.  Everytime you click on the tab of that particular link, the browser window will come to the front of the binder.

Error messages:

Any error messages caused by odd characters typed into a binder title has now been fixed.

To benefit from these new updates, replace your bookmarklet by going to livebinders.com/tool.

Let us know how it goes and if you encountered any problems.

Enjoy collecting!
