Due to a variety of reasons, we currently live in a highly polluted world and this world doesn’t stop when we go inside. A great benefit to having plants indoors is that they act as natural air filters to toxins like formaldehyde, noxious gases, and other common toxins found in products such as furniture, carpet, paints, and wallpapers. Indoor environments are surrounded with these toxins and in fact, close areas can be even more harmful because of the constant exposure to these indoor air pollutants. Plants and flowers capture a variety of other airborne pollutants as well, including dust and/or pollen. Indoor living walls created with WallPots are highly effective in removing contaminates in the air and helping improve the overall air quality indoors!
Benefits to Outdoor Air Quality
Overpopulation, cars, and industrial air toxins all wreak havoc on our air quality outdoors. Plants and Flowers work as living air bio-filters, at the same time creating oxygen enriched air to be filtered throughout the environment. Outdoor living walls created with WallPots are highly effective in removing contaminates in the air and helping improve the overall air quality outdoors!
With the increase in commercial housing and the overall density of living exploding, the amount of open space is quickly imploding! Living walls and vertical gardens take advantage of this decreasing amount of space by allowing you to hang them from any open vertical area. WallPots are perfect for a situation involving poor space and very little hope for a horizontal garden. They are perfect for apartment balconies, office spaces, or living room walls. Wallpots can be fastened to each other or anything to create a beautiful, vertical garden!
Improved Energy Effeciency
Vertical Gardens are an excellent solution to improving a buildings thermal insulation. They are also an excellent resource for shade and can reduce ambient temperatures. Once you install a living wall, you’ll more than likely find energy reductions in either the heating or cooling of the building. Interior living walls help reduce the energy required for heating and cooling the outdoor air for indoor use. Depending on the density of your plant coverage, the thick vegetation mass limit’s the movement of heat through and protects from the wind as well.
