3 cheers for houseplants!

Monday, August 2, 2010

you know they can brighten your surroundings and improve your mood, but here are three more reasons to buy a plant:
1.)  The American Society for Horticulture Science found that common ornamental plants (the purple waffle plant, in particular) removed indoor air pollutants, significantly improving indoor air quality.
2.)  A study in the Netherlands discovered that plants boosted productivity in creative work environments.
3.)  Hospital patients exposed to plants had shorter stays and less pain, anxiety and fatigue than their plant-less counterparts, according to a study by Kansas State University.
