4 Office Plants you Can’t Kill
On a busy corner of NYC’s Chinatown sits The Sill, a plant design, delivery, and maintenance shop. Since its launch in 2012, The Sill has steadily grown in popularity and it’s no wonder: plants make people happy.
Spending upwards of 90% of our lives indoors, house plants not only filter out toxins but reduce stress and better our moods. Camp David met with The Sill’s plant specialists, Erin and Christopher, to discover the best low maintenance plants that will survive at work, even when you’re “Out of Office.”
