  • Air quality – we all know that plants take in carbon dioxide and turn it into oxygen as a part of their respiratory process – photosynthesis. But a study that was undertaken by NASA looked at additional chemicals that plants absorbed from the atmosphere.
  • Noise – plants can be used as natural noise barriers and they work particularly well in high noise environments such as call centres. When put around the edges of rooms and in corners that can help with absorbing sounds.
  • Wellbeing – plants can help improve overall staff wellbeing, reduce instances of sickness and can increase productivity and employee morale.
