Why Buy / Hire Office Plants?

 

The Physical Benefits of Office Planting

In terms of physical wellbeing, the primary benefit of office plant hire is improved air quality. In a study in the 1990s, NASA found that a number of common house plants could effectively remove a range of VOCs.

Beyond air quality, office plant hire also helps boost humidity. Boosting humidity and combatting dry indoor air brings a number of physical benefits. In fact, researchers in Norway found that office plants could reduce symptoms of sick building syndrome including headaches, sore throat, fatigue and dry eyes/skin.

Finally, office plant hire can also help reduce noise pollution. Researchers at London Southbank University found that positioning large potted plants can increase sound absorption. Meanwhile, a study undertaken by the European Commission has shown that modular green walls can reduce noise pollution by up to 18dB.

 

The Mental Benefits of Office Planting

The primary mental benefit of office plant hire is reduced stress and anxiety. Researchers in Japan also found that plants can reduce physical symptoms of stress by around 27% benefit.  The study also showed a sharp reduction in self-reported levels of stress and anxiety.

Besides stress and anxiety,  office plant hire has also been shown to increase creativity,  productivity and even enhance memory.
