How Indoor Office Plants Can Assist Us To Stay Healthy

Tropical Plant Rentals would like to acknowledge our valued indoor plant hire and event plant hire clients during this difficult time of concern and uncertainty. Many of us are facing the harsh realities of the Covid-19 pandemic and experiencing life very differently from the norm. Sadly, too many businesses have shut their doors or are operating with very little staff, through no fault of their own. Where possible, a large number have transitioned to work remotely from our homes, allowing us the opportunity to isolate and do our bit to help flatten the curve. Transitioning from a high functioning workspace to an area at home, whether it be a home office setup, or simply the dining room table can be a challenging time in itself. Fortunately for most of us, our homes are providing a safe bubble in which we can live and work. For others, they play a very important role in the functioning of our communities and for this we are grateful.

We wish each and every business and fellow human, a wealth of strength and courage to reach the other side of this crazy pandemic successfully, in health and business. When the world in which we currently know, finds its normality again, we can safely transition back into our normal working environment. We can strive for what so many of us have worked hard for and to reunite with our fellow work colleagues once again.

When this happens, some of us may encounter a workplace that may feel a little stuffy, smell a little stale or look a little drab.  Some may decide to revitalise the office with a little makeover to create a positive vibe and create a warm welcome to staff.  Perhaps some new décor here or there and most likely, a thorough wipe-down of dusty surfaces that were once shiny.  Ideally, introducing some indoor office plants can be a wonderful way to vamp things up.

Nature in the Workplace

An important element of office design is including some nature. After all, humans are naturally drawn to nature. Indoor office plants have many benefits. When the time is right for your workspace to shine again, give the friendly team at Tropical Plant Rentals a call. Our team has the experience and expertise to assist you to bring the benefits of nature to your office, using stunning, vibrant indoor office plants. Big or small, we have it all.

The beauty of indoor office plants is that they not only help to clean the air of harmful toxins, but they provide a fresh new vibe, along with many health benefits as well.

Some of the benefits of having indoor office plants:

  • Providing oxygen and removing carbon dioxide
  • Improving indoor air quality by removing Volatile Organic Compounds.
  • Providing staff with biophilic elements to enhance mood and productivity
  • Improving indoor acoustics and helping to improve staff concentration levels
  • Improving indoor air humidity to reduce symptoms such as asthma, eczema, stuffy head and dry throat.
