Study Shows Increased Office Productivity with Office Plants

Get on the eco-friendly train and add some greenery in the office. While minimalistic, open-space are trending, one study from the American Psychological Association has shown that an office that’s too bare and devoid of indoors plants results to 15% more incidents of anxiety and stress among employees. 

The study further goes to indicate that when plants were brought into the offices (one plant per square meter) employee performance on memory retention and other basic tests improved substantially.

Given these numbers, investing on a little employee swag that includes desk plants could mean an increased rate of productivity and overall satisfaction in the workplace. This is good news for employees and even better news for the business.

We’ve put together these adorable and customizable desktop plants you can give away as gifts for the whole office.

The BUCKET O’ BLOSSOMS PLANTER KIT comes in a small pail packaged in pretty pastel boxes. You can add your brand name on the box and the bucket and get them as a 3-pack. The kit includes the blossom seeds and soil pellet too. Just water and 2-3 inch seedlings should come out in a week if you’ve taken care of it correctly.

Be a little silly with the GOOFY GROW POT. Each set includes a biodegradable planter with Goofy face on one side, a compressed soil wafer and a marigold seed packet. It’s made from reclaimed organic materials including bamboo and corn fiber. Just add water and watch it sprout.

Your team might also enjoy their own herbal garden on their desk or in the office pantry. The GROWPOT HERB KIT 3 PACK includes three biodegradable planters, three compressed soil wafers and three seed packets – parsley, basil and chive. Fresh herbs, anyone?

GROW-YOUR-OWN-HERB KIT contains 3 packages of seeds with other variations and combinations, starter soil, and wooden plant stakes, all inside a recycled 6 count egg carton. Write on the wooden stakes, to identify the seed type in each compartment. You add your brand with the paper band that’s used to package the kit.

Earth Day 2017 – 3 Trends To Green Your Brand Image

As we move into the celebrations of the 47th Earth Day, it’s a great time to reflect on the ways that our thinking has changed since 1970. And it’s a good time to look at ways you can improve the earth-impact of your company with some smart promotional choices.

Banning the bag

A number of municipalities and cities are moving to ban the plastic checkout bags and still others are introducing legislation to charge for them. New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington D.C.* are just some of the cities trying to limit their reliance on plastic bags. And while not every city is trying to cut plastic bag use, you can certainly see reusable shopping bags everywhere – making them a great opportunity to promote your business. We have a wide variety of totes available to match your budget and share your brand.

Taming our thirst for disposable bottles

For the first time ever, bottled water is expected to outsell soda in 2017*. That’s great news for our health, but it’s not especially great for our efforts to reduce the amount of plastic in our landfills. That fact has driven a growing number of cities to ban the use of single-use plastic bottles.

In 2013, Concord, Massachusetts became one of the first communities in the U.S. to ban the sale of single-serving plastic water bottles. Not long after, San Francisco introduced a ban on the sale of single-use plastic water bottles on city-owned property, and will be extended to include events held outdoors on public property. Also, dozens of universities and national park sites have also banned plastic bottles.

Brown bagging it – without the brown bag

Occasionally something that’s considered to be simply a smart practice really comes into vogue. And one of the most popular ‘simply smart ideas’ these days is bringing your lunch to work. Nutritionists love this idea because it’s the easiest way to eat smart throughout the workday. Economists love it because bringing your lunch to work is a simple way to save money.
