In March a report entitled 'Greening the great indoors for human health and wellbeing' was published in Australia.
The report by Margaret Burchett of the University of Technology, Sydney, Australia, looked in to the effect of office and indoor plants on air quality, mould spores and the wellbeing of the building’s occupants.
The report came to four main conclusions, none of which surprised us at Nature at Work!
Plants, firstly, were found to remove organic materials from the air, helping to maintain purity in an office environment. In offices with air conditioning plants didn’t filter CO2 to any significant extent, but those without benefitted greatly from plants.
Thirdly, there was no increase in mould spores within the office environments that were tested.
Lastly, and of significant importance to your office, plants were found to improve conditions for workers: reducing anger, anxiety, depression, confusion, fatigue and stress.
Nature at Work provides and maintains a range of healthy office plants, all of which can improve your office environment and get you results!
