Beautiful but also healthy?

It seems that there has been a recent surge in the number of proud plant parents on social media and we are not mad about it! See below the top reasons to consider purchasing another houseplant… or 4!

Plants are a mood booster

Research has shown us that exposure to nature creates a calming effect on us. While the stress of some environments can cause anxiety, sadness and a feeling of helplessness, environments with plants can reduce anger, fear and stress which boosts our overall mood.

Plants help to clean the air in your space

When we take a breath, our body is taking in oxygen and as we breathe out, we release Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Plants are the exact opposite and the Yin to our Yang! They take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen during the process of Photosynthesis. This means that with more plants around, there is a higher conversion of carbon dioxide to oxygen in your space.
Plants also purify the air around us by removing toxins. For example, it is suggested that there is a higher concentration of Benzene found in study settings where there are printed materials and books. These toxins are taken in and absorbed by plants.

Plants increase concentration, attention and creativity

When we surround ourselves in nature, we reduce our rising stress levels and mental fatigue. Studies of workers in office cubicles have found that the appearance of plants have shown an increase in work productivity and a decrease in employees taking sick leave.

Plants help you stay in the moment

And it is no surprise that having plants around us means that we are forced to stay in the moment when we take care of them. Caring for plants is a multi-sensory experience that requires most of our senses. This level of stimulation gives us a well-deserved distraction-free break from our screens and helps us focus on the little things.

We are all very familiar with the impact that single use plastic is having on our planet. If you are not aware, then perhaps some may say that you have been 'living under a rock'. But even so, you have probably been under the rock with either a plastic water bottle, a couple of straws and 10 lollipop sticks.
