Growing gardens in unusual locations is not a new idea in itself. Thus, quite a lot of greenheads worldwide take great pride in the plants growing on top of their houses, and one artist recently took a barge and turned it into quite a noteworthy sailing garden.
However, one New York University student named Marco Antonio Castro Cosio
took it to himself to green up urban public transportation by having plants grow on top of buses.
As he explains, these mobile gardens do more than just provide people with something pleasant to look at: they help reduce air pollution by absorbing CO2 and releasing oxygen.
From where we stand, Marco's idea is one that should be given due consideration by the people in charge of overseeing urban areas, more so given the fact that, when it comes to life in the city, no opportunity to grow some plants and fight back pollution should be overlooked.
