National Plants@Work Week's Pop-Up
Office-Library Cements the Need for Plants
in Workplace Wellbeing
D
uring the 6th consecutive
annual National Plants at Work
Week, plants@work Ltd will
promote a wellness strategy for
businesses.
Building a pop-up green office to
illustrate how plants create a perfect
setting to encourage creativity,
productivity
and
a
stress-free
environment as well as a healthier
atmosphere, they will include a library of
resources about plants.
A plant library
The library will include plants@work's
new book Plants for Wellbeing which
covers 30 years of research into why we
should surround ourselves with plants
and the benefits they bring.
With workplace and employee wellness
on every business' agenda and with
programs in place to help their
employees function as well as possible,
this offers another string to their bows.
Biophilia
Our natural need to connect with nature
physically both inside or to overlook
green spaces outside, be they gardens,
walls or roofs, becomes increasingly
clear the more research that takes place.
Plants@work Chair Madeleine Evans of
Tivoli Services agrees, "Our plant-filled,
pop-up office library designed and
created by plants@work ambassador
Ian Drummond of Indoor Garden
Design, celebrates the aesthetic beauty
of plants within an indoor space.
Featuring our new book Plants for
Wellbeing, will also show how plants
can add to the calmness of a space and
the people in it."
"I’m so happy to see the huge amount
of research carried out on the benefits
of plants over the last thirty years
collected in this one book. It’s a mustread for all Interior Landscapers and
anyone interested in increasing
wellbeing and productivity in the
workplace." commented Ian Drummond.
Plants@work hopes that turning a few
pages of the book will encourage more
businesses to understand how plants
are a necessity to our health, wellbeing
and our future.
