Pet Friendly Plants

One of the easiest ways to a breathe a little life into a room is with the addition of a plant or two. Or five.

Plants not only add colour and decor, but many houseplants also have air-purifying properties. The downside though, is that some of the most popular houseplants are also very toxic to pets and children. Spruce up your home without the worry, consider these plants instead. They are non-toxic so your pets (and kids) will be safe – at least if they try to eat it. Knocking them over is your problem.
