St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and we thought it would be a great time to think about how you might “think green” with the help of our wood pedestals.
First of all, did you know that green plants in offices reduce stress and increase productivity? According to a study by the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture at Washington State University, an “office landscape” that includes plants reduces blood pressure and increases reaction times in straightforward computer tasks. Workers were also able to concentrate more effectively on their tasks. We suggest that a simple way to implement this office landscape is to purchase some of our wood pedestals and set green plants upon them in strategic locations around your office. Not only will they brighten the space, they will also increase your employee’s well being. We also suggest adding another plant on a pedestal in your reception or waiting area, to help calm visitors in preparation for meetings or appointmen ts.
Secondly, our wood pedestals can also provide a green display solution. Unlike many expensive, hot display lights that must illuminate a large area, our internally lighted display pedestals use efficient, focused and cool lighting fixtures, meaning that they will cost less to operate and generate less heat that your air conditioning system will have to counter.
Finally, you might wonder also about the green nature of our wood pedestals themselves. Most of our wood pedestals are actually wood veneer, which means that you get the elegant look of an expensive hardwood while we use only a thin sliver of the wood itself on the outside of the pedestal. The rest of the pedestal is made from durable woods that are easily regrown. This allows our wood pedestals to be affordable (green on the wallet) as well as minimizing their impact on the environment.
So think green with us this month and check out our beautiful, stylish and practical wood pedestals.
