LONDON, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
There's something about plants that most of us love whether it's their flowers or their calming effect. But did you know that plants in the workplace keep us feeling tip top, calmer and happy too? On top of that they help us to concentrate and be more productive - something the boss will like!
During Nationals Plants at Work Week you can logon to their Facebook page or join them on Twitter (#plantsatworkweek) to learn all about the reasons you should have a plant on or near your desk. Get talking to the folks behind this week to learn more, they'll be happy to help.
There'll be several other things happening during this week. You'll be able to see plants popping up all over the place in London and other cities, learn which plant has won the title of Office Plant of the Year, get tips about plants and talk about your favourite. You might even find a houseplant tagged 'Take me to work' left for you to do just that!
Did you know?
We need to connect with nature and the easiest way when you're at work is with indoor plants
- Plants keep the air clean and refresh it with oxygen for you to breathe
- Being able to see plants or having one on your desk makes you less stressed or depressed
- They can also raise humidity levels so that you feel more comfortable
- Amazingly we are more productive when they're around too
No room on your desk?
If room or Health and Safety make having plants around you difficult ask the powers that be about installing a green wall. These can be a permanent feature or a mobile one. They take up little room and can really make a difference to a workspace.
