This Earth Day, Plant it for our Planet | AR Indoor Plants


As we mentioned in a previous blog, the fact that plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen is one of the first things we learn in school. However, in honor of Earth Day, we thought we’d share a few other ways plants are beneficial to Earth and the humans who live here.

While you’re here, are you looking for some indoor plants to spice up your Little Rock workplace? Need tropical plants or flowers for your wedding or event in Jacksonville? If you need indoor landscaping services, plant rental or even plant maintenance in the Little Rock area, give our Green Team at PLANTation Services a call! We’ve worked with many local businesses throughout Arkansas, so we know the perfect plants for any occasion. Now, here are a few of the reasons plants are essential to the health of our environment:

Earth Day Plants Little Rock

Clean Air

This may be an easy one, but it’s still worth mentioning. Plants are vital to maintaining the level of oxygen that keeps us alive and well, especially since carbon dioxide concentrations of even 2% can be dangerous to humans. In fact, if you’re planning on going into an oxygen-deprived environment, bring a couple hundred plants with you (if they can fit in the tight space that is) and you can have enough oxygen to breathe comfortably for an indefinite period of time.

Plants are the building blocks of life. They provide food, shelter and renewable energy for all animals and even other plants. Also, plants naturally purify water, making it drinkable for wildlife, and through transpiration plants transport water into the atmosphere. Finally, plants improve the quality of soil and promote growth of both plants and animals, Take a look at Mars to see what a planet looks like without any plants. So, this Earth Day do Earth a favor and plant a tree or invest in some plants.

Healthy Greens

Did you know that 25% of all prescription medication comes from plants? From lavender and dandelions to thyme and even celery, plants are great at naturally treating anything from cuts and burns to disease. Feeling nauseous? Make some mint tea. Get a bad sunburn? Rub some aloe on it for instant relief. No matter what’s troubling you, there’s a plant that can help.

Plants make you Happy
That’s right – plants make you happy. As we mentioned in another previous post, there are studies that clean office air and living plants contribute to increased productivity, happiness and the relative well-being of your employees. Houseplants can reduce the chance of getting a cold by up to 30% by raising humidity and lowering dust levels. They also can relieve stress, headaches, congestion and even drowsiness. Maybe it’s time to invest in your business and your employees by introducing some plants to your work environment!
