Vertical forests: The beautiful way to battle CO2

The Daily Catch - J-P Mauro - published on 02/06/17

Everyone is looking for a way to combat rising levels of air pollution in vastly populated cities like Beijing. Growing in popularity world wide, vertical forests may be the scenic solution:

The towers have heights of 110 metres (360 ft) and 76 metres (249 ft) respectively and host 900 trees (each measuring 3, 6 or 9 meters or 10-30 ft) and over 2,000 plants from a wide range of shrubs and floral plants distributed in relation to the façade’s position towards the sun.

Not only do the plants help to clean the air, but the vertical forest leads to a gorgeous view that’s bound to raise property value.
