“Plants are the young of the world, vessels of health and vigor…”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Essays and Lectures

Want a healthier body? Why not start with a healthier home?

Following a healthy diet and lifestyle begins with preparing fresh meals from whole organic food ingredients. Growing delicious fruits, vegetables and herbs in your home is a great step toward establishing a healthful dietary regimen, even given the hectic pace of modern life.

Diet and lifestyle are important, of course, but research is showing the quality of our interior spaces has a big impact on our overall feelings of health and wellness. Here again, plants play a key role.

NASA has done a significant amount of research looking into the effects of plants on air quality. As part of the shuttle, space station and deep space flight programs, NASA tested plants’ ability to remove harmful chemical compounds from the air.

The two-year NASA study concluded that numerous plants were effective at removing a wide variety of toxic compounds, from formaldehyde to benzene and carbon monoxide.

Recent studies have shown that the installation of interior garden spaces can reduce stress and increase performance in college and office workers by up to 12%. Plants have been used in hospitals to improve patient’s feelings of wellness and to help speed recovery.

These findings should come as no surprise. Spend some quality time in a botanical garden and you can really start to feel the positive energy of the space. Be it in the home or at the workplace, Peapod Life™ strives to deliver a useable living space that supports people coping with the toxicity of modern day life.

From providing a beautiful indoor garden living space that fills your lungs with fresh clean air and melts away stress, to feeding your body with fresh organic produce that melts away pounds, Peapod Life™ strives to be, in Emerson’s words, “a vessel of youth and vigor” for your home.
