Our Purpose

Green Plants for Green Buildings is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization. Our purpose is to communicate the aesthetic, wellbeing, and economic benefits of nature in the built environment. We are people with plants, making life better.

What We Believe

We believe in biophilia. Biophilia is the instinctive bond between human beings and other living organisms and living systems. Research suggests that buildings that contain features of preferred natural environments will be more supportive of human well-being and performance than those that do not contain these features.

Did You Know?

Workers in office environments with natural elements, such as greenery and sunlight report a 15% higher level of well-being, are 6% more productive, and are 15% more creative.
