Vertical gardens in Bogota can lead to greener future

 

Planners in Bogota say the Santalaia building in the Colombian capital sets a good example to increase green zones in urban areas.

In the middle of one of South America’s most congested and polluted cities lies a green oasis. The Santalaia building in the Colombian capital Bogota is the largest vertical garden in the world.

Its «living walls» can absorb carbon dioxide emissions from 750 cars a year. According to the planners, the building sets a good example to increase green zones in urban areas.
