Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them”; and it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good. ~ Genesis 1:11-12
Global warming and air pollution are on the rise and if you live in a populate busy city, you experience pollution on a daily basis. Pollution is not just outside, it is in our homes and offices and it is even worse in commercial buildings. Plants have a unique value of clearing and cleaning the air we breathe
Research shows that humans have a natural desire to be connected with nature but we are so busy in an urbanised world that we have become so disconnected with nature. Planting pot plants in your office or home is a great way to reconnect with nature. Pot plants do not just add greenery to your space, these living organisms interact with your body, mind, office and home in ways that enhance the quality of life.
Benefits of pot plants:

The air purifying and filtering properties of pot plants ultimately results in a healthier and happier working and living environment.
