New Resources Promote Benefits of Indoor Plants

Posted By By Jennifer Gray, AmericanHort, Tuesday, March 27, 2018
Indoor plants where we live, learn, heal and work have far-reaching positive effects on our well-being and indoor environment, according to a new report from the National Initiative for Consumer Horticulture (NICH).

To lift up the message, four new #PlantsDoThat infographics focus on the multitude of ways indoor plants positively affect where we live, where we work, where we heal, and where we learn. The infographics can be viewed and downloaded for free from NICH’s website. Growers, retailers, teachers, extension agents, and interiorscapers are encouraged to use these free promotional and educational resources.

“Greening the great indoors is a way to help create sustainable indoor ecology and healthy minds and bodies,” says Dr. Charles Hall, Ellison Chair, Texas A&M. The infographic series was developed from a scientific literature review of evidence developed by Dr. Hall and his students.

“We envision this series of infographics to be used as a tool to showcase the power of indoor plants in our personal and public spaces,” says Debbie Hamrick, NICH Economic Committee chair. “We want to raise awareness of the positive benefits of plants in our lives. Plants clean indoor air, stabilize carbon dioxide, and create comfortable ambient air humidity.”

The National Initiative for Consumer Horticulture (NICH) is a consortium of industry leaders, including AmericanHort, who are promoting the benefits and value of horticulture. NICH brings together academia, government, industry, and nonprofits to cultivate the growth and development of a healthy world through landscapes, gardens, and plants both indoors and out and to get 90% of U.S. households gardening by 2025.
