Spring into Greenery

Arriving at the office before the sun rises and leaving at dusk can cause a real sense of deprivation for those who love the outdoors.  With Daylight Savings coming into effect this past Sunday, it marks the start of spring, as we all start to look forward to spring and longer days with the sun shining start planning for how you want to spend your spring.

Whether you work from a home office or in a shared office space, greenery can have a restorative effect, and adding some houseplants might be the missing nature link needed to improve productivity and job satisfaction. Branded office plants or plantable gifts can have so many benefits, it makes it one of the most useful and thoughtful promotional merchandise options. Adding your logo or messaging to one of the below gifts shows you truly care about your employees or other lucky receivers.

Here are some great ways to add plant joy into the workplace:

1. Desktop Greenery

Gifting plants can bring joy to any office space – plants have been proven to reduce stress, boost creativity and productivity. Plants can encourage teamwork plus with coworkers by creating schedules to care for each others plants when the other is away. Include an uplifting message with your branded gift to increase the effects.

Team engagement ideas: Host a “grow fastest” contest!

2. Gourmet Herbs

Herbs are not only a way to add great taste to your meals without adding salt, but they also have numerous nutritional benefits. There is now ample evidence that spices and herbs possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antitumorigenic, anticarcinogenic, and glucose- and cholesterol-lowering effects, plus contain properties that affect cognition and mood. Expand your taste buds and start your own herb garden this spring to use in all of your recipes.

Office Engagement Ideas: Recipe exchanges or cooking contests – even Friday beverages!

3. Plants for Wellness

These days we tend to keep plants and flowers around as decoration or to take advantage of their lovely scent, but research also shows the wonderful ways in which plants can actually benefit our health and happiness. Perhaps when we’re feeling a bit run-down the garden should be our first port of call.

Office engagement ideas: Organize an herb sharing office event, or create a greenery quiet area.

4. Encourage a Green Thumb for a Green Planet

People plant a garden for various reasons, including filling empty outdoor spaces, improving their home’s curb appeal, and having access to fresh herbs and vegetables. Additional eco benefits are even more of a plus – plants help create cleaner air and offer cross-pollination by birds and bees and more.

Office engagement ideas: Have a lunch room talk about what people are doing to live a greener life.
