As authors of Just GREEN It! and founders of the eco-chic, online boutique, GreenNest.com (2005 through 2011), it is no secret that Ron & I looove to get our green on!  We’ve discussed the importance of greenery in your home and office to improve your indoor air quality.  But, did you know that plants and greenery in the work place can boost morale and productivity while reducing stress? In indoor environments, plants and trees both create oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide (CO2); while some even filter out toxins (watch our video and join us on a trip through our local nursery to Discover 10 Plants that Clean your Air)!

Additionally, plants create a calming affect when you are trying to relax at the end of a hectic day (uh, who doesn’t need this?). Having plants in your work and home will make you a happier, more vibrant person according to researchers {you thinking what we are – a perfect gift for that moody boss!}. As if that ain’t enough, according to a recent study published in The Journal of Environmental Psychology, having plants in your work space makes you smarter (and yes, the ain’t was intentional)!  That’s right…enough to increase your attention span. An increase in attention span means that we’re able to remember more of what we read. So whatcha’ waiting for? Get ready to enjoy the countless benefits of more greenery into your life!

Just don’t plant the weeping fig in the ground. The root system is horrid.
