Homestead Gardens Celebrates National Indoor Plant Week

banner-natl-indoor-plant-weekA week-long celebration of the joy of indoor plants! Plants are a vital part of our existence whether we realize it or not, and we want to encourage you to explore the benefits of adding houseplants to your indoor home and work spaces. NASA studies have shown that many of our easiest indoor plants are also amazing air purifiers, as they oxygenate our air and remove toxic chemicals such as carbon dioxide, formaldehyde, ammonia, and benzene, which are released from furnishings, carpeting, paints, and cleaning products. One of the best ways to reduce sick-building syndrome is to add plants to an interior space! Other studies have shown that those that live/work in homes/offices with plants tend to be less stressed, and healthier in general. What’s not to love? So, we want you to love houseplants as much as we do, for your own good—and we’re here to help you do it.

Check out our events and promotions for this exciting week dedicated to the special symbiotic relationship between human and houseplant, and bring home a healthier lifestyle for you and your family.
