Thoughtful Youth find new home for 50 Indoor Plants- by Simran Vedvyas

Plants play a vital role in providing a pleasant and tranquil environment in which to move, work or relax. Indoor plants also help health, well being and productivity in the workplace. Recent research has shown that indoor plants significantly improve a whole range of aspects of our indoor environment.  The benefits cover a spectrum from physically cleaner air to direct beneficial effects on psychological health, task performance, illness reduction and productivity.


Many a times when we want to renovate or refurbish our offices, homes or work places, especially in the construction sites and the temporary project office sites, or being expat based economy like UAE leave the country, it is a common practice to discard and abandon or sell old stuff.  Some of our youth members surveyed and found that this is a very common practice and most items can be sold and bought through secondary markets, but very rare do we find and buyers or takers for Old Plants.  

We brainstormed and came up with a highly Innovative and creative idea by the team SynergY and its members who recently participated in theSustainability Week Celebration by the company Al Futtaim Carillion for the project titled Finding New Home for Indoor Plants and implemented it successfully.  Taking it as a challenge, our bright team assisted by talking and facilitating to find new home for 50 Indoor Plants for the company which was accepted and is being taken care currently at Al Salam Private School in Dubai.  

I am so proud to lead this and participate by asking on behalf of the donating company and giving consent on the behalf of the accepting school.   The co ordination required transporting the plants from as far as Abu Dhabi to Dubai and we are so happy that it went smoothly.  

Our team would be very happy to further assist such initiatives and facilitate in UAE
