An Argument for Household Plants

Flower We all know that plants brighten our mood and our environment.  Here are a few more reasons to add houseplants to your room:

1.  The American Society of 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 plantless counterparts, according to a study by Kansas State University.

So include a plant in your decor.  You'll be happier, more productive and have more energy because of it!
