A green, mobile office for NPWW

on Sunday, 10 July 2016. Posted in News

Early this morning we sent out a press release via the newswire to the media/publications around the country. The reason was to promote the 2016 National Plants at Work Week (NPWW) which starts today.
 
Working away
The release explained the main focus of the week - to highlight the benefits of plants in the working environment. To emphasise this, we decorated a black cab into a green, mobile office. 
Our reasoning
With advances in technology, business isn't restricted to the office. With home-working and working hubs springing up everywhere, a mobile office won't come as a surprise. A green, mobile office is even more inviting especially in terms of health and wellbeing.
So we thought that as business men and women rush from one meeting to another they can finish off their preparations in the cab or conduct their meetings there.
"We all know that nature and green plants have very positive benefits for the working environment and all who use it, so a black cab is the perfect place to site a green mobile office," commented efig ambassador, Ian Drummond who is Creative Director at Indoor Garden Design Ltd and responsible for the installation.

efig's Chairman, Chris Jenkin, MD of Enterprise Plants Ltd confirmed the benefits of bringing nature into the office. "We are more used to planted installations in a traditional office," he said, "But technology doesn't stand still and neither should we.
"Ensuring that everywhere we work has a natural element is important not just for health but also for improved productivity and creativity. Research in recent years has supported these theories.
"One of the latest concepts, biophilia, is one that is several decades old. The theory is that we all need to connect with nature - it's in our genes. When we get this connection with nature is when we function best and bringing plants indoors is one of the simplest ways to do this."
Members' initiatives
We hope that during the week, we will have lots of opportunities to show you what efig members have been up to promote NPWW too. If you want to know how you can get involved take a look here.
