Here at Junglefy, it’s no secret that we have a serious addiction to plants. All plants. Inside plants, outside plants, big plants and small plants. We just can’t get enough of them and we want to see them everywhere! That’s why we were so excited to see a recent article acknowledging the beauty and capabilities of nature and encouraging everyone to have plants both inside and out!
As people are realising the many benefits of plants for our health and wellbeing, the trend of indoor-outdoor offices is becoming more and more popular. This “nature-inspired” approach to design and architecture is being adopted by many companies as the demand for healthier workplaces increases.
