De Bloemenbrigade

20 / november / 2015

I’ve always worked in the communication profession, but missed working with shapes and colour. And I was tired of sitting at a computer. While trying to figure out exactly where my passion lay, I did an internship at a florist. At some point, it became clear that this is what I wanted to do full-time! I believe that if you start something new, you really have to make sure you stand out among the rest. Festivals and food trucks have been my inspiration!

De Balkonie

News
20 / november / 2015

A while ago, I was walking through a garden centre and noticed that most of the products targeted people with a garden. There were virtually no products for people with a balcony, while almost no one in Amsterdam has a garden. Most garden centres are also located outside the city, while sometimes you’re simply looking for a few plants for your balcony. This is a real pity because I believe that your own little green refuge in the city makes you a happier person. This was how the idea for De Balkonie was born.

Plants Reduce Harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in the Air by 50%!

News
20 / november / 2015

We often spend more than 90% of our time inside and the air we breathe during this time may be 5 to 10 times more polluted than the air outside. Research carried out by climate architect Marius Ballieux, supported by Waterdrinker Aalsmeer and Nieuwkoop Europe, shows that plants filter out many of the harmful VOCs in the air, which is, of course, good for our health. This proves that plants can partially take over the function of ventilation systems!
