The benefits of a "green" office
It is well known that the outdoor feeling makes people happy. A walk in the woods, enjoying the garden or going to the park; it does a person good. "Green" is the common link here. Perhaps less known is that the "green" element in the office produces the same positive effects. How does this work?
More oxygen in the office
Without going into too much biological and physical details, this has something to do with the amount of oxygen. Obviously there are sufficient amounts of oxygen outdoors, but as office buildings become increasingly airtight, the oxygen flow in offices space deteriorates rapidly. At the same time CO2 builds up and doesn’t find its way out easily. Health problems caused by poor air quality is not unfounded and a serious issue indeed. It's official name is the "Sick Building Syndrome". To improve air quality, bringing in plants and other "greenery" is the ideal solution. And not only that. A green office environment significantly stimulates and increases the cognitive functions of office workers. More green, a better vibe, less health issues and a better focus!
Take the outside, inside!
Plants in the office clearly have important advantages, but how do you make your office green? Very easy! Placing plants here and there is a good start. You can take it up a notch by placing a larger tree in a corner or even construct an entire wall with plants. Be creative! Remember that each plant needs different maintenance and take into account that not all plants like dark corners. We hope you enjoy your new "green" office!
