Fighting Air Pollution with Vertical Gardens


The World Economic Forum informs that Mexico City has found an innovative way to fight the air pollution. The city has put vertical gardens alongside busy road to help clean the air. Each garden is covered by more than 2300 plants which absorb pollutants.

Fernando Ortiz Monasterio, the founder and CEO of Via Verde, the company which created the gardens, says that moving around Mexico City may be a little stressful and tough because of the concrete and the traffic. Due to the plants, driving along the highway is now not only ecologically friendly but it also makes people smile.

The initiative is beneficial not only for the clean air. The felt in which the plants grow is wholly made from recycled plastic bottles.

Mexico City is doing its best to reduce air pollution including car bans and investments in public transport. But it is still one of the most congested cities.
