Plant swap April 2016

Adopt a pot

During the week of 25th April 2016, the Library Sustainability Champions ran an “Adopt a Pot” week.  Plants were available for staff to adopt for their office.  We also had an outdoor plant adoption.

Why have a plant?

Plants affect your wellbeing. Plants reduce stress levels and blood pressure, while increasing your attention span.Plants improve air quality. We spend around 90% of our time indoors, surrounded by the chemicals used in cleaning products, furniture and toiletries. Plants can filter out many of these pollutants.  The best plants for an office are easy to care for. Green is also a calm and reassuring colour for a busy room!
