Study shows plants in the work place can increase productivity

If you're not feeling very motivated at work, you may want to buy a plant.

A new study in the Journal of Experimental Psychology shows that putting plants in the office can increase happiness and productivity.

Researchers monitored two large commercial offices in the United Kingdom and Holland.

After plants were brought in, overall productivity improved by 15 percent within three months.

This may be because foliage absorbs pollutants, dust and bugs from the air.
