Indoor Plants Have Many Benefits!

People spend an average of 90% of their time indoors. Indoor air quality is generally more polluted than outdoor air. For those of us who seek a clean, healthy environment, plants are an essential element for work and home.


Plants improve indoor air quality by helping to remove chemicals such as formaldehyde and carbon monoxide.

Plants thrive on carbon dioxide and convert it into oxygen. The increase in oxygen allows humans to be more focused, attentive, happier, and most important, healthier.

In business settings, plants have been shown to increase productivity, occupancy and retention rates, and lower absenteeism.

Plants enhance creative problem-solving skills.

When plants are present, employees are more satisfied with their jobs and report fewer ailments.

Plants help reduce noise levels, decrease temperature and lower humidity.

Workers in plant-friendly environments miss fewer days of work and experience less job stress.
