Within the first few months of living in Beijing, Annie and Amy became increasingly aware of the air pollution and concerned for their health in the long-term. While researching sustainable, natural solutions to improve the air quality of their interior environments, they came across studies demonstrating that certain houseplants can filter out harmful airborne chemicals within interior spaces. After equipping their own living spaces with air-filtering plants, Annie and Amy founded O2ganic to share the benefits of organically-filtered air.
Annie Dickson provides plant consultation expertise for O2ganic. She helps develop clients’ air filtering solutions based on investigations into clients’ specific air-filtering needs and living environment.
Annie is currently studying Organizational Psychology at Columbia University with a focus on cross-cultural workplace conflict. She previously provided communications consultation for multinational technology and healthcare companies in Beijing. Annie has a background in Psychology and art, and lives with organically filtered air.
She is a part II architect, having studied sustainable living and urban regeneration in the UK, with several years experience in the field. Based out of Beijing, she currently works as an architectural advisor, and lives with organically filtered air.
