We can all breathe a little deeper knowing it’s possible to infuse health and wellness throughout our homes. These products can help…

There is one thing we often take for granted—the quality of the air within our homes. What we have come to find out over the past few years is that our indoor air is often worse for us than the air outside. Thankfully, Intellipure, an air purification system, can help keep our indoor air as clean as possible while removing bacteria and pollution particles that can cause us to get sick. We can now literally take a deep breath of fresh, clean air the minute we walk in the door.

Over the past few years, and even more so the past few months, we have heard experts extolling the praises of plants.

The team behind Plantogram wanted to make sure they gave people options for adorning their homes with beautiful, unique plants—over 200 different types—no matter what size space their space.
