12 benefits of promotional plants


1. Positive brand awareness

Have you ever known anyone to receive a plant and not smile? They’re cute and colourful, but most importantly, they spread a positive message about your brand: that you care. You really can’t go wrong with choosing them to rep your brand.


2. Increase productivity and creativity 

It’s been proven that productivity can grow by at least 15% if there are plants scattered around the office, and having approximately 1 houseplant per metre has been shown to improve memory retention - perfect for reciting presentations from scratch. 


3. Growing social media presence

Plant sales have risen by 50% over the last 3 years, and that’s mainly to do with their rise in popularity on social media. With the love of all things green sprouting up online, your brand could be shared far and wide all thanks to your humble desk plant.


4. Great mental health benefits

The very act of caring for a plant promotes mindfulness, which is great at boosting your mental health. 

Plants offer that respite from the toils of daily life; time to take a breath, and just be when you’re caring for them. 

Plants with broad leaves are seen to improve mental health as seeing their bright, amazing greenery every day makes us feel more calm and relaxed.

5. Improve your morning routine

Having a great morning routine can make all the difference before your workday even begins. Groups such as Win the Morning, Win the Day encourage you to have morning rituals that add meaning to your routine. It’s not about accomplishing more in your day, rather it’s about having the best positive start possible. And what better way to start your day with a bit of plant TLC?
