  1. Forests and trees store carbon, which helps lower the impact of climate change.
  2. Trees help improve the local climate by removing harmful pollutants and providing shade.
  3. Trees reduce noise pollution.
  4. Forests help filter and regulate water.
  5. Studies show that just being around plants can improve your mood and concentration.

So why do we care about this day and why should you care as a company?

If just being around plants can improve your mood and concentration, why wouldn’t we want out employees to enjoy these benefits? Engaged employees increase productivity. This year for International Day of Forests, we will be giving each employee their very own office plant and we will have our lunch outdoors!
