A healthy environment is vital to a person’s well-being and living plants contribute to it more than you might think. Green and flowering plants are good for one’s health and not just because they look beautiful with their variety of greens and a stunning range of flowers, but they serve a practical and aesthetic purpose. Plants freshen up the air we breathe, they convert the carbon dioxide we exhale into fresh oxygen and eliminate harmful toxins from the air. Extensive research by scientists at NASA has shown that plants are effective natural air purifiers; and the bigger and leafier the plant, the better. “The amount of leaf surface area influences the rate of air purification,” said Bill Wolverton, a former NASA research scientist who conducted the 1989 plant study.
Need a boost? Studies have also proven that indoor plants improve concentration and productivity; they reduce stress levels and boost one’s mood — making them perfect for the workspace. Plants, especially those with broad leaves, help regulate humidity and increase levels of positivity — seeing greenery and nature help us feel more relaxed and calm, which in turn benefits one’s mood. This being said, living plants are one of the best ways to enhance the everyday work environment. With increasing interest in the Well Building Standard and in biophilic design, plants are an excellent solution. Not only are they are practical and trendy, they help create healthier and more productive environments, thus making them a great return on investment!!!
