Are green roofs starting to gain popularity in America?

    Yes! Many businesses are beginning to see the long term cost efficiency of using green roofs.  For example, in Jacksonville FL, contractor Mary Tappouni is building a green roof for her construction company.  This will help her business reduce water costs by filtering rainwater, and the green roof also helps to reduce heat inside the building.  

    Chicago, Portland, and Toronto have green roof initiatives that have helped promote this eco-friendly fixture, and it’s catching on.  The roofs naturally cool the buildings below them, reducing air conditioning/additional energy costs.  Though it’s not mainstream yet, green roofing is definitely gaining popularity.
