We've all heard over and over again about the poor quality of the air we breathe outdoors. But what about the air we breathe inside -- especially in places where we spend hours upon hours a day, like our offices?

Research shows the quality of the air in our offices may be getting worse thanks to toxic chemicals in carpets and on furniture, poor ventilation, and employees not washing their hands.

In fact, there have been so many illnesses reported in office buildings that the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that one in four new or renovated indoor buildings in the U.S. may be classified as "sick buildings."

Luckily, there are things we can do to help keep sickness to a minimum, from dusting our desks with a damp cloth once a week to decorating with plants that are great at removing air pollutants, like Boston ferns or palm trees.

To learn more about why our offices are making us sick and what we can do about it, check out the infographic below we created in partnership with Market Domination Media. And don't be afraid to speak up to your superiors, as fixing these problems will benefit them, too.
