Cityscapes Joins the Effort for Reducing Our Carbon Footprint in Boston

September 15, 2011 (Boston, MA) — The public gathered in Boston’s Back Bay for Carbon Day in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint in the city of Boston.  The  exhibits on display included programs for tree and green space stewardship, green roof and living wall technology,  innovative varieties of  electric transportation,  and information about new plans for electricity use in our city and state.  This year Cityscapes supported the cause by participating in the Urban Foliage exhibit.  Cityscapes displayed two of their free-standing, portable living walls and provided information about the extensive benefits indoor plants and living walls can provide to your space.  The event was sponsored by Boston University Center for Energy and Environmental Studies and Clean Energy and Environmental Sustainability Initiative.

Please take a look at some photos from the event:
