Some experts argue that adding plants to the work environment can help to reduce the risk of sick building syndrome. If one of the benefits of plants in the office is better health . . . why wouldn’t you want to introduce them?
Adding plants to an office improves the office’s environment, but studies have shown that office workers feel far more satisfied when they have a view that overlooks vegetation as opposed to another building or road, so if you can’t afford a full desk assessment and intervention, why not opt for our Plant Intervention?
Plants in offices increase happiness and productivity
Having small indoor plants will improve the air quality and remove impurities while adding a focal point to your work environment.
Office greenery can reduce levels of airborne dust, air temperatures and background noise.
Plants absorb our dirty air and, through photosynthesis, effectively cleanse it, releasing clean oxygen.
Why should we do it for you?
Only plants that require low maintenance, can handle low light, and thrive in warm environments make good options in the workplace, so for a small fee, we will create a plant intervention at your office: making sure a plant is in the eyeline of every client at your office.
