Indoor plants reduce the levels of air pollution and volatile organic compounds (VOC's) within a building. VOC's are emitted by materials used in computers, fax machines, photocopiers, furniture and fittings. Plants can also reduce the number of microorganisms brought in to the building by staff and clients.

Toxins, chemicals and odours can cause headaches, eye, nose and throat irritations, nausea and stress. Even 'bad moods', lethargy and low motivation can be attributed to an unhealthy work environment.

The Workcover Authority of NSW recommends that living plants be used to assist in alleviating the so-called "sick building syndrome". As little as 1 plant per 10 square metres can make all the difference.
