Tree Day at work
Research released by Planet Ark shows that Australians are willing to give up an average of $3,674* pay to be able to work in a more natural workplace but 28% of workers can’t see any natural features from their workspace. It also show’s that having plants around the office helps workers recover from tiredness more quickly, reduces the presence of airborne bacteria and increases productivity.
National Tree Day is a great opportunity for workplaces to bring a bit more nature into the workplace or to encourage staff to get outside. Activities could include
- Planting trees in the garden,
- Hosting a green morning or afternoon tea,
- Giving staff plants for their desks or to take home.
