Green Walls & Your Health

 
Do you know how mighty the houseplant is? Aside from the obvious aesthetical quality of incorporating a green wall within an interior space, the benefits go beyond and can actually improve your health!


Spanning three floors, this Gro2 GroWall provides multiple levels of texture, color, and a more appealing and healthier environment within this NYC office building’s glass stairway.
  
People spend more than 90% of their time inside, where levels of pollutants can be 2-5 times higher than outside. With more and more buildings using energy-efficient techniques that further insulate the indoors from the outside, there is cause for greater health concern ranging from asthma and headaches to respiratory diseases and cancer.
 
Studies have shown that the addition of a green wall improves the overall air quality, decreasing health issues such as: 
  • cough
  • fatigue/unproductivity
  • dry throat/skin
  • mucus membranes
  • neuropsychological symptoms 
What boss wouldn’t want a decrease in absences and stress and an increase in productivity?


Green wall plants boast significant powers to clean the air in homes and office buildings of common toxins such as formaldehyde, ammonia & benzene.

Additionally, green walls have been known to reduce dust particles and contaminants, such as formaldehyde and benzene, that come from cigarette smoke, paint, furniture, and building materials. These toxic fumes that you didn’t know where lurking indoors can be cleaned from the air and instead replaced with vital oxygen created by green wall plants.


Plants can begin removing pollution the moment they're placed in a room and can be particularly useful in spaces where there's little outside ventilation.

So how do plants do it you may ask? Plants clean the air by absorbing pollution through small leaf pores and via microorganisms living in the potting soil that metabolize contaminants. Scientists believe plants can begin removing pollution the moment they're placed in a room and can be particularly useful in spaces where there's little outside ventilation.

The humble houseplant that may have been overlooked is now a super hero in becoming an aesthetical and functional mainstream air filtration tool.
