What are the best plants for the office?
Plants and exposure to nature in general, boost both well-being and effectiveness among employees. The use of plants in the office helps to filter out indoor pollution and produce oxygen to help clear our minds. Plants in the office reduce stress in employees, purify the air and can act as a visual barrier in the workspace. Adding a plant to your workspace not only enhances the appearance of your space but carries proven wellness benefits, from boosting productivity to cleaning the air.
