Why not accelerate the natural ability of plants to filter the air around us? As we reported in November, ANDREA [1] by Le Laboratoire [2] aims to do just that. This “living air cleaner [3]” recently entered the North American market, promising “to diminish the amount of toxic gases in your lungs and therefore to breathe more naturally and healthily.” According to data published on the company’s website, ANDREA [4] encases and enhances the metabolism of living plants, soil and water to oxygenate and more effectively remove airborne toxins such as formaldehyde from the environment.
