Why plants?

Our plants add so much more than just a splash of green. They invite the outdoors in, bringing with them a host of mental and physical health benefits.

Increased productivity

Research has proven that workers who can see greenery from their desks are less stressed and more productive than those working in a ‘lean’ environment, completing work up to 15% faster and reporting greater job satisfaction.

Cleaner air

It’s a well-known fact that plants release oxygen, but did you know that every person in your office needs around five litres of oxygen a minute? And yet the air we breathe is often filled with toxins released from furnishings such as paint and carpets. According to a N.A.S.A. study, plants can remove up to 87% of these toxins in just 24 hours. Now that’s what we call efficiency.

Reduced noise levels

No longer just a plant in a pot, interior landscaping options now include systems that can be used to create soft barriers, forming private areas to meet, work, and relax. What’s more, plants have been proven to absorb noise – an optimised planting display can help reduce noise by around 5 decibels, creating a calmer environment for all.

Improved health

Studies have shown that live indoor planting can actually reduce staff sick days. By absorbing air-borne toxins, plants can help to improve minor respiratory conditions and headaches caused by indoor air pollution. Not only that, but plants can reduce symptoms of stress and fatigue, reducing the risk of burnout and lowering company sick leave costs.
