This will prevent from entirely breaking those old buildings and eventually minimize the possible addition of landfills.

The building also has facilities complex that will houses offices, cafes, and more greenery. Another space and the third of this building is an outdoor garden.
With the aim to reduce noise pollution that the machines inside the plant cube in Getafe, Spain are producing, a vertical garden is made. Designed by a team of talented individuals from Paisajismo Urbano (Uran Landscape), this one of a kind vertical garden has an irrigation system that has the ability to perform automatic checks and performs various tasks like self-cleaning, fertilizing, and SMS sending the moment an anomaly is detected. The gardens approximately 2,500 plants are planted on a 128 square meter area, thus creating a 128 square meters of vegetation. With the vertical garden, the noise pollution has been reduced and the oxygen required by 128 people for a year is being produced.
Car companies are consistent in creating eco friendly cars. We have talked so much about the hybrid cars. This time around, let us make ourselves familiar with this Antro Solo car, not just a hybrid car but it also has a pedal. The Antro Solo car, seats three McLaren F1 style, and weighs less than 600 pounds. It also has an impressive 100mpg and can run 87mph. The Antro Solo is built out of carbon fiber and composites that made it weigh low. Its engine is a gas-electric hybrid, and it has a large array of roof-mounted photocells that can charge the battery to extend the EV range. But if the sun goes down, passengers can now start peddling. Sound funny, but yes the Antro Solo comes with pedals.
