    It would be super awesome!  Green roofing has a lot of benefits, including the mitigation of storm water, energy conservation, and making roofs last longer – despites being pretty!

    Super awesome indeed and here is why.

    Green roofs absorb rainwater, provide insulation, lower air temperatures (diminishing heat island effect), and make a great habitat for wildlife. 

    A study by U of Toronto (Bras Bass) in 2005 showed that cooling loads on a building was reduced 50 – 90%.

    If every Flat roof in Chicago had a green root, it is possible that we would reduce the whole city’s temperature in the summer.
