New Study – Wood and it’s Physiological Benefits – Planet Ark

Planet Ark has released a new report into the health and wellbeing benefits of wood materials in homes, businesses and places for learning.

Titled “Wood – Housing Health Humanity” the study was released on International Day of the Forest – 21 March, 2015.

Set in an Australian context, the report provides a review of studies analysing the health benefits of wooden surfaces, interiors and furniture in homes and the workplace.

A number of physiological, psychological and environmental benefits were identified for wood – including:

  • Improvement in emotional state, and self expression
  • Reduced blood pressure, heart rate and stress
  • Improved air quality through humidity moderation in interior applications
  • Wood’s use as a long-term store of carbon.

The study explores Australians innate attraction towards wood.

Wood exudes warmth, comfort and relaxation – however the conscious knowledge of these benefits is low in Australians.
