Many people are catching on to different ways they can help to battle climate change. One of the most widespread ways in an urban area is the practice of planting gardens on rooftops. Rooftop gardens are a great, trendy way that the average man can help to fight the large amounts of Carbon in the air. The natural processes of photosynthesis will help reduce the amount of Carbon in the air and ultimately ‘green roofs‘ may impact climate change.
Another less well-known way that people can do to battle climate change is paint their roofs white. Painting roofs white will significantly reduce the temperature of the building overall during the summer and make it less necessary to use air conditioners. White roofs, or ‘cool roofs‘, will help with the effort of keeping this planet green!
