The 'Life-on' Eco-Friendly Roof Tiles Use Grass to Keep Your Home Green

 - Jul 10, 2013
Turning your home beautiful and green, the Life-on eco-friendly roof tile works to grow grass on your roof. The sleek shingle contains a slot for soil and plant life so that your property works to keep you comfortable. Conceived by designer Teng Xuan, the roof tile saves the planet while saving you some money.

By placing strips of plant life on tiles, Life-on keeps your house cool during the summer and warm in the winter. In the summer, the eco-conscious tile blocks out sunlight so that your abode doesn't overheat. The grass also filters out carbon dioxide to keep the air fresh. During the winter, the grass dies and forms an insulating barrier that increases heat retention. As a result, you can use your air conditioning and heaters less and save on your utility bills.
