BBB Serving Eastern MA, ME, RI & VT - Decorating your office with plants isn’t just a way to liven-up your setup anymore; with the right plants, you can boost your productivity and happiness while adding a homey vibe to your workspace. Working indoors all day, especially when the weather starts to warm up, can be kind of a drag. On top of that, the air quality indoors is surprisingly far less suitable than the air quality outside, even in the most polluted cities. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) believes this is due to an abundance of chemicals found in common household products such as paints, varnishes, cleaning/disinfecting products, office equipment and craft materials.Plants add life to your space. Literally. According to a first-of-it’s-kind study by The University of Exeter, they are found to increase productivity levels through air quality, concentration and workplace satisfaction by a whopping 15 percent.Below we’ve listed the best plants for any office space that will not only spruce up your once dreary and dull desk, but can actually make you more physically, cognitively, and emotionally involved in your work.For Small SpacesOnly have a small desk to work with?
