Live Green Plants in our offices can actively clean toxic pollutants from our indoor air and eventually from our bodies.
“According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, over three billion pounds of toxic chemicals are used in industry, metal mining, manufacturing , generation of electrical power, and other applications. From there , they can eventually make their way into our food, air, water, and soil.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is so concerned with this problem that they actively monitor for over 400 of these chemicals in human urine, blood, and breast milk, and gauge their health effects. Many of them contribute to deadly diseases diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, by triggering alterations on DNA and creation of free radicals.”
When we think of adding a colorful accent to our indoor office plants we often think about cut flowers or a flowering potted plant. Actually there is another option. Tropical foliage plants that have beautiful colored leaves. If your office has the right conditions, bright light and warm temperature, there is an unlimited selection of plants that have colorful foliage and variegated leaves. Crotons, Cordyline, Rex begonias, Stromanthe are just a few that can brighten your office with some color. We use many of these on locations in the Boston metro area. Colored leafy botanicals have unlimited plant possibilities.
