Thanks, plants!

Without plants, there's no life.

When you think of plants, you might think of the snake plant that sat on your grandparents’ windowsill, or the spiky cactus in your office meeting room. Yet plants also cover the steppes and tundras, and make our countryside green and picturesque. Just think of the heather on the moor, or the forests alongside motorways — and what about the fruit and vegetables we eat? These green beings we share our planet with provide us with enormous abundance and riches. We could do with thanking them more often.

The history of plants is part of the history of the Earth itself. They are essential for our planet's survival. Thanks to their ability to convert sunlight into energy via photosynthesise, plants are the world's main producers of oxygen, and also the basis for most food chains. In terms of evolution, the existance of animals on land could only occur after plants had arrived. Without them, there would be no oxygen, no food, no animals — and we wouldn't exist, either.


It has now been proven that plants in the house make your life a lot more pleasant. They provide relaxation and improve air quality. With indoor plants and trees, and by creating various green seating areas in your home, you create a place where you can recharge. That's also the perfect place for a mindfulness exercise with plants! And did you know that plants are capable of creating a holiday feeling at home?
