GROW PLANT SALES WITH NATIONAL INDOOR PLANT WEEK
Established to promote plants and increase awareness of the importance of green and blooming plants in interior spaces, National Indoor Plant Week (NIPW) can be a great opportunity to promote your plants.
Celebrated annually the third week in September, the 2012 edition of National Indoor Plant Week is Sept. 16-22. And every plant seller should consider joining the initiative.
According to the NIPW website, indoor plants are proven to improve the home environment and increase morale in the workplace. “Numerous studies have shown that plants have a positive psychological impact on people. According to a recent study, employees exposed to interior plant settings demonstrated better attitudes and positive emotions such as happiness, friendliness and assertiveness.”
In addition, the website contends there are measurable health benefits as well: “Real life office studies have been conducted to measure the direct relationship between clinical health, complaints and plant installations. Recorded health improvements in offices where interior plants were added were significant. Results show a large reduction among employees in the areas of fatigue, headache and coughs, and their overall well-being rose dramatically.”
Houseplant supplier Costa Farms supports NIPW via its 02 for You: Houseplants with a Purpose program, and you can find details about the most prolific purifiers in Costa Farms’ clean air plant guide.
