Plants really help with that healthy New Year’s resolution and they go on helping throughout the year. They’ll help prevent the winter blues and keep the germs in the office to a minimum.

They’ll help reduce anxiety and stress as well as keeping everyone happier. They answer our need for biophilia – that connection with nature – by bringing the outdoors in. In fact we can’t think of a reason why well-maintained plants shouldn’t be an essential ingredient for a happy, healthy and productive office.



What to do
Join us on social media to help get everyone else to realise why plants are so important to our health and wellbeing at work.

Use the hashtag #plantswork to tell us what you’re doing to promote plants in the workplace to create a healthy space; send us a ‘deskie’ – a sort of desk-focused selfie – and add your comments on Twitter.

Post photos on our Facebook page and add comments on LinkedIn.

Get involved; invite your clients and your colleagues to get behind plants on this day in particular. Of course remember that the effect will last much longer than a day.
