About the Holiday

International Plant Appreciation Day celebrates the many benefits of plants in our homes, places of work, and outside. Plants belong to the Plantae kingdom which includes trees, mosses, ferns, herbs, grasses, vines, bushes, and green algae. The main feature of a plant is their green color which is a result of a pigment called chlorophyll. People who study plants are called botanists. The benefits of plants are many and include:

  • Provides the air that we breath as they change the carbon dioxide in the air into oxygen
  • Provides food and drink (i.e. tea, basil, cinnamon, cayenne, garlic, lemon)
  • Increases humidity
  • Provides shade and break the wind
  • Helps lower noise levels
  • Proven to increase worker productivity and attendance
  • Improves the look of your property (inside and out)
  • Some plants can even remove toxins from indoor air!
