nullIn today’s toxic environment, everything will kill you. Or so the popular thinking and local news segments go. Lucky for us, all we have to do to combat this lethal existence is hang a few spider plants around the home office.

A design spread in the aptly named Good Magazine shows off which plants will allegedly help filter out chemicals from household sources, thereby making your life a little nicer.

And yes, the hard science on this sort of stuff is a bit on the iffy side, but having some green around the house is almost guaranteed to make you feel a bit better — even if it’s just psychosomatic. I’m looking to do a little revamp of Modern Hiker’s home-base, and will probably incorporate a few of these suggestions into the mix. If I think they’re working, they’re working.

Right?
