Indoor Plants

Posted on May 13, 2021

Imagine you are sitting on a picnic blanket in the middle of a grassy park. The sunshine warms your skin as a gentle breeze drifts through the crisp air.  Now, imagine you are plucked from that park and dropped inside a dimly-lit cubicle with no indoor plants.

But don’t take our word for it, there is ample science behind why you should bring the outdoors inside.
