This sounds positive. The world also needs more environmentally sustainable products, so that the pollution is not generated in the first place.

This is good news. At least some of us are caring for the mother earth not for papers inscribed with numbers.

It is about time that politicans wake up to the fact that green is the way to save not only "money" but lives and the environment. I first saw green roofs in Chicago about 5 years ago and was very impressed with the cleanliness of the city.

There are several ways to get a better enviroment. Not just only by telling people to not go by car/bus. Busses we will always have and not always will it be possible to go by electrified busses/trams in cities. Electric cars are good, but not everyone can afford them. Giving the earth a helping had with using spaces we destruct by building on is just fair. It helps earth keep our polution down a little untill the day we become as green as we possibly can be.

Thanks for sharing.
