Green roof innovations are everywhere. Pick up nearly any architectural magazine and you'll see at least one green roof project. Green roofs are covered by vegetation that prevents stormwater runoff and absorbs carbon dioxide from the air. They can cut down on heating and cooling costs while providing food and recreation opportunities.

The green roof innovations collected here are just a one part the many Trend Hunter eco-finds on this site.

Implications - These green structures boast an innovative, eco-friendly design that helps to reduce the toxic emissions so harmful to the earth's atmosphere. Companies would be wise to release products that allow customers to reduce their carbon footprint and keep the Earth's health in mind.
