DIY: How To Grow Your Own Fresh Air Air Quality Published on March 26th, 2009 | by Jerry James Stone According to GreenSpaces, these three plants not only lead to fresher indoor air…but also an increase in productivity! GreenSpaces has tested these plants for the past 15 years in a 20 year old, 50,000 ft2 building with over 300 occupants, and 1,200 plants!

FOCUS GROUPS {*style:<b> </b>*} Hace 20 años, las sesiones de grupo para investigar las percepciones y motivaciones de los consumidores respecto a un producto, se llevaban a cabo en salas o estudios de casas suburbanas típicas.
