LIVE PLANTS
PROMOTE
WORKPLACE PRODUCTIVITY

Businesses have long realized that the physical environment directly affects an employee's ability and desire to work. Now, businesses are realizing that interior plants are a natural and vital part of a productive workplace environment. The majority of Fortune 500 companies have landscaped their office interiors boosting morale, building employee contentment and promoting productivity.


LIVE PLANTS
CLEANSE THE AIR
AND COMBAT ‘SICK BUILDING SYNDROME’

The problem is large and growing. Contemporary buildings are sealed tightly to increase HVAC efficiency. Inside those sealed environments man-made articles such as paints, plastics, insulation, plywood, carpets, synthetic fabrics and detergents emit up to 300 harmful pollutants. However, leafy green help is available. NASA-funded studies directed by Dr. B. C. Wolverton, a 20 year veteran in horticultural research, proved that plants commonly used in interior plantscaping cleanse the air of many harmful pollutants such as formaldehyde, benzyne and trichloroethylene. Material distributed by the Plants For Clean Air Council (PCAC), demonstrates that plants remove pollutants in varying quantities depending upon the species. The PCAC recommends one potted plant for each 100 square feet of floor space.


LIVE PLANTS
HELP KEEP HUMIDITY
WITHIN A HEALTHY RANGE

When the air is too dry, people are susceptible to colds and flu. When the humidity is too high, people can develop other ailments. Through their natural processes of transpiration and evaporation, office plants add moisture to the dry overheated air often found in sealed office environments. At the same time, studies show that plants do not add moisture in  significant amounts when the air is already moist. A study conducted at Washington State University, suggests that plants help regulate humidity. When plants were added to an office environment, the relative humidity stabilized within the recommended   “healthy” range of 30 to 60%.
