What's next after roof gardens? Gardens atop public buses, of course!

Amsterdam could be the first city in the world with a Phyto-kinetic green bus, a real city bus with a real garden on its roof. The eco project is notable not just for its uniqueness, but because it cuts CO2 emissions that automobile engines are releasing into the atmosphere. To water the roof, it is only necessary to make use of the condensation of the buses air-conditioning system, which is already installed on the roof of the vehicle. The hotter it gets, and the more water the plants need, the more they are watered, by the simple act of using the air-conditioning. We love this idea and hope it spreads to cities worldwide.
