In the process of developing the modern world, many toxic substances such as harmful metals and petrochemicals have contaminated the places where we live. Across the world, soil where food grows and children play may contain harmful amounts of toxins. Luckily, there are free and self-sustaining tools that provide additional benefits to the environment: plants and fungi. Some plants absorb certain toxins from the soil in a process called phytoremediation. To reduce the toxins in a specific area of land, a specialized plant treatment can be designed for those toxins and climate.
