Indoor Air Pollution:

To create a more environmentally-friendly office environment, incorporate large indoor plants and encourage your employees to keep a plant on their desk. Indoor plants are great for creating healthier indoor air quality. That can be important in stuffy offices, or offices without environmentally friendly furniture, as the extra oxygen indoor plants produce can help counter the off-gassing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from office furniture.


As part of your effort to go green, you’ll want to look at how your office furniture is made and what the potential health impact of it is. Understanding that your office furniture, as well as your carpet and paint, is probably polluting your indoor air is an important first step towards mitigating the effects of that pollution.
