Leveraging Indoor Plants for Safety During COVID-19

2020 has been a year unlike any other. COVID-19 and the resulting government action has changed almost every aspect of our everyday life.  Gatherings and events have been cancelled or postponed. Everywhere you look, from television advertisements to your local grocery, you see signs reminding you of the ongoing pandemic. Things that would have seemed out of place only a few months ago are now commonplace.

In order to keep safety at the forefront of everyone’s mind, businesses are doing all that they can to keep employees and customers safe. Even the way that we move through buildings has changed. When you enter, you are greeted by clumsy partitions and stanchions, pointing the way towards limited entrances and exits. Everyone is wearing masks of varying shades and styles. Before leaving, you must wait in line, staring at the dirty, hastily applied “X” on the floor to ensure social distancing.

Just because social distancing is now required doesn’t mean that it can’t be beautiful and beneficial for your business.  At Engledow, we harness the power and benefits of indoor plants to add life and vibrancy to any indoor space.  This includes helping you with social distancing in your facility.

Rather than ugly, outdated stanchions, customers and clients could be met with a beautiful green planter, guiding them on their way.  Instead of ugly “X’s” taped to the floor, Engledow can work with you on how to incorporate natural elements into your facility to aid in social distancing.  Not only will the greenery help protect your employees and customers from COVID, but it will also give the inside environment a boost.  Indoor plants have been shown to provide a variety of benefits, including cleaner indoor air, increased worker productivity, and reduced absenteeism.

Every client’s situation is different. At Engledow, we do not believe in the one-size fits all approach.  Our team of expert designers will work with you in order to create the perfect plant package for your business. You will be amazed how much a touch of green will make everyone more comfortable, and healthy, in your facility.
