The power of green

What is the power of green? You can approach this question in different ways. For example, what do you think of when you think of the color green and what is the power of this color? What happens if you bring more greenery into your interior through plants? And what does more green mean when you look specifically at sustainability. We have listed it for you.


The color green


Each color has its own unique effect on us. This also applies to the color green. This color is seen as a neutral color that radiates tranquility. It evokes feelings such as optimism, satisfaction and ensures effectiveness. Green is the color of life, reminiscent of spring and summer. It is therefore not surprising that you can completely relax when you walk in a forest or nature reserve.

Green plants in your interior


We like to take the feeling you get when you walk in nature indoors. You can easily do this by placing (green) plants in your interior. But besides the green color, the plants have many more positive effects on us.


Air purifying
Most houseplants have an air purifying effect. The plants convert CO2 into oxygen and can emit water vapor, which improves the humidity in a room.

Improves concentration
Because the air quality has improved, we can also concentrate better. An extra good idea to bring more plants into your home now that we work from home a lot. Do you work in the office? Then suggest to your colleagues that they place more plants. Success guaranteed!

Another additional advantage of plants is that they improve the acoustics in a room.
The leaves absorb the sound. The larger the plants, the better the effect. But also consider a moss wall. These greeners also do wonders for the acoustics!


Plants make us happy
Lastly and perhaps the most important reason to put more plants in our interior is that it makes us happy. Various studies show that plants can reduce stress. In a house full of plants you feel relaxed and happy more quickly. You can trace this all the way back to prehistoric times when we as humans lived in nature. Plants in your interior bring back this real primal feeling. We simply feel good among the plants.



The color green also stands for sustainability. Many organizations and brands are now committed to sustainability. Whether it is to create more awareness or to produce products in a sustainable way. At Growing Concepts we also try to contribute to this as much as possible. Because we naturally want to preserve this special world with all its beauty for as long as possible!

There is currently an interesting exhibition on sustainability in the Museom-Ominiversum museum; “One Planet Expo”. The exhibition is about topics that concern us all: a fair distribution of food, water, energy and how we can best live together on this planet. Seventeen exhibition components highlight aspects of a sustainable development goal. And the nice thing is that there are also Growing Concepts products on display! So if you want to get our Ecolight or moss wall in the museum, take a quick look at the exhibition which is fun for young and old!
