Benefits of plants

Why have Plants?

People have always intuitively sensed that contact with plants and nature is a calming restorative tonic for body and soul.

Over the past 25 plus years, academics and scientists have researched houseplants to establish exactly why and how they are good for us, our home, our schools, our hospitals, our businesses and our environment as a whole and in doing so, they have established that plants:

  • Improve air quality and humidity levels;
  • Reduce stress;
  • Make people calmer and happier;
  • Reduce workplace negativity;
  • Reduce symptoms of discomfort and minor ailments;
  • Reduce absenteeism;
  • Speed up recovery from illness;
  • Improve concentration, productivity and creativity;
  • Save energy;
  • Absorb noise;
  • Increase shopper dwell time by half an hour when using in shopping malls.

 

As you can see, plants are valuable to us in so many ways. We want everyone to see how amazing plants are, so we we have launched a new campaign called ‘The Value of Plants’.  Using findings from a range of studies, we have produced a series of infographics to show how plants help us in different settings, including educational, healthcare, home and workplace environments. In all these places, the greatest value plants have for us is the improvement of our well-being and mental health.
