They say plant lady is the new cat lady, which is a statement we’re 100% onboard with. It goes without saying that adding some greenery too your home is beneficial to your health, so why shouldn’t it be the same for your office? After all, we spend more than a third of our day at work, and in a city like Hong Kong, there’s always room to improve when it comes to air purification.
In fact, studies have shown that the presence of indoor plants can boost productivity, reduce common allergy symptoms by decreasing particulate matter (e.g. dust, pollutants), improve mood, boost relative humidity, respiratory issues, and generally decrease the likelihood of Sick Building Syndrome.
While Garage Society is already all about the greenery, there’s always room to up your plant game in your office or home. We’ve listed some of our favourite air purifying indoor plants below, which are easily found just about anywhere (although we highly recommend a visit to the Hong Kong Flower Market).
