Not only are they beautiful but also they offer many other financial and cost saving benefits too such as:
Productive Staff – research has established that plants have a calming effect, particularly for those sat behind a computer screen for more than 4 hours a day. The benefit is greater concentration and increased productivity.
Reduced Absenteeism – it has been proved that complaints of minor ailments, often linked to Sick Building Syndrome (i.e. headaches, blocked sinuses, dry throats, coughing and skin irritations), decrease by an average of 25% when there is interior planting.
One Plant Per Desk - Besides cleaning our air and making us feel better, plants also improve concentration, motivation, creativity and productivity.
Cleaner Indoor Air – Plants absorb toxins (VOC emissions) through their leaves and their growing medium and emit oxygen for us to breathe. Perfect recycling and environmentally friendly!
Improved Humidity – Plants return well over 90% of all the water we give them back into the atmosphere raising humidity levels and making us more at ease.
Noise and Stress Reduction – Research has found that plants absorb noise on their resilient leaf surfaces therefore stifling noise waves. Studies have shown that the physical signs of stress i.e. pulse rates and blood pressures were reduced in people working in a planted area
Conserve Energy – Plants create their own mini micro-climate around them as they absorb heat, reducing the amount of air conditioning necessary.
