I believe that incorporating these roofs will have a monumental effect on our environment through the processes that happen within green roofs. Not only do they have a natural and satisfying appearance but they also help remove harmful air particulates, protect the buildings they are implemented upon, help the consumer financially in the long run, along with so many other reasons. Green roofs are safe and natural and we need to get the message out to the rest of the world. There is no reason why we should not implement them as soon as we can, because it will take no time at all before we start to see their results.
