Health and Wellbeing in the office with Hire Plants

04 November 2019

Hire Plants have been part of NZGBC since 2015. Over that time they have been generously stocking and maintaining our office forest without charge. As well as supplying and maintaining your workplace greenery, they are also a great source of plants for special events, giving a luscious boost to our trade fair stands, events and conferences. Lucia Gardner, Head of Sales and Marketing, explains why more greenery is good for the office.

There is a mountain of evidence supporting the idea that biophilic design in the places we work, relax and live supports a healthier and better you. From reducing blood pressure and stress to increasing creativity and clarity of thought at work; plants are the answer. For thousands of years we lived in harmony in nature and then we left our rainforest, plains and prairies to live in concrete jungles, we are bound to miss the greenery!
