Benefits of Office Plants

Office Plants do a lot more than just make your work environment look nice.

Plants have been on this planet for billions of years and it is well known that they are essential for life on Earth.

 

Office plants are proven to improve the office environment.  Most people know that plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, but plants do so much more to regulate the atmosphere around us.

 

Modern buildings tend to be sealed tight and heavily insulated to reduce energy consumption.  However, this results in less air exchange with the outside world.  Chemicals from the insulation and other construction materials, synthetic furnishings, cleaning products and electrical equipment, all build up in the building.  We breathe and rebreathe this polluted air again and again.  Headaches, nausea, sore and itchy eyes, loss of concentration and other symptoms are all associated with sick building syndrome.  The introduction of interior plants has been proven to reduce these symptoms significantly. In addition to the improvement to air quality,  the right office planting scheme has many other benefits:

  • Increased positive feelings and reduced feelings, anger and sadness.
  • Reduction of echo and noise.
  • Reduction of stress and anxiety.
  • Optimum control of humidity for human health.
  • Cooling effect.
  • Absorption of carbon dioxide and the release of oxygen in the air.
  • Improved levels of concentration.
  • Reduction of absenteeism in the workplace.
  • Faster recovery from mental tiredness.
  • Interiors feel spacious and clean.
  • People prefer to stay and work in rooms with plants
