Green 'Smart' Wall Humidifies And Purifies Air Indoors

By Brian Spaen

Whether you work from home or in an office, it's quickly becoming a norm that we don't spend nearly enough time in nature or around plants. Unfortunately, journeying into the great outdoors on a regular basis isn't an option for a lot of us. So how can we integrate nature back into our daily lives? Finnish startup, Naava, is here to help. Naava's solution is their "smart" green wall, which is made up of live plants that have the ability to monitor the quality of our air. Even better, these plants feature a foolproof way to take care of themselves while they are proven to clean the pollutants around us.

The health technology company created the smart green wall to improve our work environment. Many people that work in offices are limited to the four walls around them, or they’re held inside an even more restrictive cubicle. While this can be spruced up with decorations and reminders of home, it’s still a draining experience day after day.

One of the best additions to the office is bringing in plants as they can improve both health and productivity. However, these do add another task of maintaining them each and every day. After all, no one likes to invest in a new plant only to have it dry out and die due to poor sun or infrequent watering. In order to get the full health benefit of plants, we’d also need far more than a few pots on the desk or near the window.
