Office plants could be holding the key to making your working environment healthier, happier and more productive. The science behind the benefits of office plants in the workplace is as compelling as it is comprehensive.

Indoor plants are said to be a great mood-booster, with recent studies showing that employees believe that plants in the office environment helps to boost their mood, regardless if they are real or artificial. The Royal College of Agriculture have suggested that plants can even increase creativity, productivity and attentiveness whilst also reducing staff stress levels by up to 50%.

Besides improving employee morale, live plants act as a natural health promoter as they release approximately 97% of the water they take in. As natural humidifiers, research shows plants have the ability to mitigate illness such as the common cold, fatigue, headaches, coughs and dry facial skin, and in turn reduce levels of staff sickness. The air we breathe indoors can be as much as 12 times more polluted than outside air in some areas due to the compounds in paints, furnishings and our clothes. Luckily, research by NASA suggests plants alone have the ability to remove up to 87% of volatile organic compounds and other toxins every day!
