Cigarettes, printers, copying machines, exhaust fumes, ozone….these all threaten the quality of our air and therefore our well being! The smells can be camouflaged with a factory air freshener, but does this solve anything?

Federal Space Administration NASA has proven that Spathiphyllum clears the air of harmful substances. The beautiful thing is: you will receive pure oxygen in return and work in a much more pleasant green environment!

Did you know that the indoor climate of a third of all modern office buildings in Europe does not meet the European requirements for a healthy indoor climate and that absence due to illness is significantly higher than normal as a result?

Reducing health problems

A good indoor climate in the workplace is a precondition for optimum performance of employees. In many workplaces the air is too dry and there are harmful substances in it that can lead to health problems. Frequent complaints are: dry throat, head ache, dizziness, fatigue, irritated eyes, bronchial tubes and skin, coughing.

Plants supply humidity to the air, absorb warmth and noise and can absorb harmful substances as well as break them down. Employees enjoy workplaces with plants more, leading to a verifiable reduction in stress and sick-building symptoms, such as head aches and fatigue.

5 reasons for plants in the home and in the workplace

  • A 30% reduction of fatigue, headache, coughing and irritated eyes.
  • Employees are less stressed.
  • Employees using screens feel better and are more productive.
  • Plants lastingly reduce absence due to illness. In a Norwegian hospital this was reduced from 15% to 5%. That is a 60% reduction.

Beside ventilation improvement and separate placement of printers and copying machines, the plant helps improve the air quality in the workplace by vaporising water through the leaves, absorb heat (and noise) and clear the air of dust and pollutants. Plants help keep the climate healthier, more stable and reduce asthmatic and sick-building complaints.

Plants not only provide advantages inside the building. Deciduous plants on the sun-facing side of a building offer shade in the summer and isolation against heat loss in the winter. This can cut a company’s heating costs by 20%.
