National Indoor Plant Week: Why Plants?

National Indoor Plant Week: Why Plants?

Humans have an innate connection to nature. In fact, it’s science. Biophilia is the word used to identify this relationship – that our connection to the natural world is an important part of what makes us humans. We want to take a moment and celebrate National Indoor Plant Week by exploring why having plants in our spaces speaks to our intrinsic biophilic instincts. Green Team at work!

Throughout human history, we have continually spent more and more time indoors inside built environments. These usually consist of concrete, steel, plaster and other cold materials that are far from natural. We lack the warmth, softness and greenery that humans have lived and worked around for centuries.

Something changes in people when we reintroduce plants and greenery into our living and working spaces. Researchers in a recent study from Harvard concluded that employees in green-certified offices (spaces with plants) get a 26 percent boost in cognition and 30 percent fewer sickness-related absences. Respondents also reported a 6 percent rise in their sleep quality, perhaps due to lower stress levels.

An Exeter University study found that employees were 15 percent more productive if they were working in a ‘green’ office than peers in more spartan environments. Bringing plants into our offices can actually improve our businesses, from the bottom line to employee well-being. That’s some serious green – in more ways than one! Green Team Our Green Team sees these benefits every day and we would love to share our plants with you. Celebrate National Indoor Plant Week with us and give our greens a try.

Have Fun at Work Day: PLANTation Services Style

While April 1 might be Have Fun at Work Day for everyone else, we celebrate it every day PLANTation Services! We truly love caring for our green friends and keeping your indoor spaces beautiful and inviting. But, we also care for our own team, too!

PLANTation Services Team

We want to take this opportunity to also celebrate our fearless leader and owner of PLANTation Services, Robin Connell, who works hard to do excellent work and makes it fun to work here. We know there are lots of great places to work, but we think PLANTation Services is someplace really special.

Did you know that almost every Friday morning Robin cooks the staff breakfast? And, we don’t mean just bringing a box of donuts (although we NEVER say no to donuts). She cooks eggs to order, waffles, egg casserole or any other number of baked goodies she can whip up and we get to spend quality time together, enjoying our great team!

Team at Shower

Robin has been at PLANTation Services since 2006, and she quickly moved into management. In fall of 2011, the owners presented Robin with the opportunity to purchase the company. Robin thinks it’s important to work together like a family, especially with such a small staff. In this field, each teammate travels daily and they are hardly ever in the office together – except for Friday mornings.

That’s part of what makes the breakfast tradition so important! It’s our time to gather together and enjoy our family time. Interested in joining our Green Team? Click here to learn more about Robin’s journey and apply!
