Plants promote wellbeing – a new infographic lets people know what they can do to help care for themselves now, and in the future.
We’re all feeling the effects of this pandemic, perhaps sheltering in place, perhaps in an essential industry that is pivoting several times a day to address our rapidly evolving circumstances.
This month we’re supporting #StayPlanted, an interiorscape industry effort to bring attention to the beneficial role indoor plants play for those who are sheltering in place and those still at work.
We are letting the world know that while we may be spending more time indoors during the COVID-19 crisis our indoor plants are making that time just a little bit better. For now and for years to come.
People like Maya Puller, a college student, and self-described plant lover have already tapped into the wellbeing that results from connecting with, and nurturing, indoor nature. “My plants have become my extended family.” I acknowledge their needs, treat them kindly and most importantly, love them. In return, they provide me with beautiful foliage. They simply make me happy!”
GPGB has distributed a call to action on behalf of #StayPlanted. The first action is focused on social media and asks interiorscapers and biophilia advocates to use the #StayPlanted hashtag on their social media posts and post the #StayPlanted infographic. Similar to the way that photos of bears and hearts in windows are being used to communicate solidarity and empathy for our current social disruption, the campaign asks that us to post photos of plants in windows with the #StayPlanted hashtag.
The second action is focused on local media. Share this press release and infographic about the #StayPlanted campaign with your local media. Use your name and contact at the top of the release and distribute it freely!
