Green roofs – roofs with soil and plants placed on top of conventional roofs – are growing in popularity. And that’s a good thing. 

Urban sprawl and growing population density contribute to climate change in a way that is often overlooked: heat islands – urban areas that are hotter than surrounding rural areas.

According to the EPA, “Heat islands can affect communities by increasing summertime peak energy demand, Deer Stags Men's Wherever Navy Microsuede Slipper 16M (US)air conditioning costs, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, heat-related illness and mortality, and water pollution.” That’s a significant amount of harm!

Green roofs may alleviate some of the harm that heat islands create.

Plants on green roofs capture airborne pollutants and atmospheric disposition and filter noxious gases. By helping to moderate temperatures inside the buildings beneath them, green roofs also reduce the stress on power plants, which can reduce the amount of CO2 released into the air. And the benefits don’t stop there. Here is a list of the personal and community benefits of green roofs.

In California alone, 14 of the most massive 20 ASICS Men's Lyte-Trainer Running shoes occurred in the last 15 years. When correctly built, green roofs can aid in the protection of homes because the common plants used in extensive green roofs are sedums and succulents, which retain much more water than other plants making them less likely to ignite or catch fire.

Green rooftops act as an additional barrier between the sun’s harsh ultraviolet rays and the waterproofing membranes on your roof that can be damaged by drastic temperature fluctuations. 

The extra layer of protection from the sun that green roofs provide helps to reduce energy costs by acting as natural insulation. The National Research Council in Canada found that green roofs reduced the need for air conditioning by nearly CG06 Capezio Split Sole Jazz Tap Black. Supra Men Sneakers Flower Run Grey 42This process of lowering the temperature of the building is called evapotranspiration, whereby the plants absorb water through their roots and use the heat in the surrounding air so the water evaporates.

A recent study conducted at Stanford Medicine concluded that green roofs aren’t just good for the environment, they actually boost productivity. The study further showed that contact with nature not only lowered stress, but improved concentration and mood. 

As discussed earlier, UHI is caused by the heat created by energy from people, cars, buses, and trains in big cities. Areas affected by UHI can have worse air and quality than their rural neighbors. Green roofs help reduce the UHI effect because the plants absorb carbon dioxide and leading pollutants. 

Green roofs absorb and retain 70–90% of rainwater during the summer and 25–40% during the winter, JHHXW Casual shoes, sports shoes, trendy, high-top men's shoes, street dance shoes, zipper shoesthereby acting as a natural filter for stormwater runoff.

Now that you know about the benefits of green roofs, let’s talk about the different types of green roofs, of which there are mainly two: intensive and extensive, which is determined by the depth of planting soil and the amount of maintenance they need.

Intensive green roofs are basically elevated parks. They’re recreational areas on rooftops that can support gardens, trees, playgrounds, parks, walkways, benches and other activities that require complex structural support. 

Chicago’s City Hall is a great example of an intensive green roof.

Because of installation and maintenance costs and requirements, intensive green roofs are best suited for commercial or government buildings. 

If your town or city is proposing new construction, attend the town hall or meeting to advocate for the addition of a green roof. You can also organize to introduce a green roof initiative like the one recently passed in Leather Men's Driving Loafer Round Toe Flat Heel Solid color Splice Vamp Slip on shoes shoes

Extensive green roofs are a shallow covering of greenery on the roof. Not designed for recreational use, the extensive garden is simpler, costs less and has many of the same benefits. 

Because of the lighter nature of extensive green roofs, they require a weight capacity limit of only 15–50 pounds per square foot, which means they need less structural support. And, once established, they also require less maintenance. They are a great option for homes and condos.

You might love the idea of green roofs, but if you’re not quite ready to create one for your building, you might want to consider a rooftop container garden. But, before you start planning the garden, make sure you have both the legal permission and the structural integrity Bruetting Unisex Adults' Mount Bona High Rise Hiking shoesKenneth Cole Reaction Men's Corey Slip on Loafer with a Flexible Outsolerequired for the task. 

Our most vulnerable communities are affected by extreme heat first – and most. The EPA warns that cities like Chicago could see 30 more days per year of 100+ degree weather. If green roofs can help reduce the urban heat island effect, then let’s work to ensure municipal governments – and the real estate developers they approve – commit to the best kind of urban jungle: green roofs.

Netroots Nation, the yearly progressive conference that brings together activists, politicians, the news media and more for four days of trainings, panels, networking and featured speakers, was held in Philadelphia July 10–13 – and CREDO members and staff were out in full force.

Nearly every year, CREDO plays a role at the event, from its nascent beginnings more than 15 years ago to this year’s largest-ever conference.

CREDO Action Co-Director Heidi Hess opened the Friday afternoon keynote addresses with a moving speech celebrating the power of the progressive grassroots movement and reflecting on our responsibilities to work hard and dream big when it comes to using our power to create the world we all deserve.

CREDO Action Campaign Manager Thaís Marques hosted an organizing training entitled “What is Absorption? Turning Mobilizing into Organizing at Scale” with Nicole Carty of PowerLabs. During her session, Thaís explained how we can turn moments of outrage into meaningful, real and lasting power, and used her experience as an organizer at Movimiento Cosecha as an example of how she helped bring people from all walks of life, especially in immigrant communities, together during and after powerful mobilizations.

And CREDO Mobile and CREDO Energy joined the Netroots “town square” with a major presence designed to bring together activists and progressive leaders to meet our staff and learn more about our mobile and energy products. We were honored to play a large role in the success of this year’s Netroots Nation, and we look forward to seeing our friends and fellow CREDO members in Denver next August!

This solution is for the more budget-conscious consumer. A smartphone dry bag is just a thin bag in which you can seal your smartphone. At a cost between $7-30, it is a great option if you are looking for a limited use solution such as a day at the beach or pool. But there are a few downsides you should be aware of:  

Some popular brands include WJP Men's Sandals - Summer Durable Leather Sandals, Baotou Anti-Collision Toe, Casual Beach Slippers, Two Ways of Wearing B 41, Kelme Men's Futsal shoes White Bianco, Nike Men's Kaishi 2.0 Low-Top Sneakers, Vansky, and Mpow.

Some people make fun of the Ziploc-type bag phone case, but this cheap solution actually works. Waterproof phone pouches work especially well at the beach because they keep both sand and water away from your smartphone. 

Here’s a video tutorial that shows how two bags provide superior protection by securing the initial seal. And if you think this option is enticing, you are going to love this upgraded option involving a vacuum-sealing device like the Food Saver. 

Before you go running towards the open water with your newly protected device, be sure to test it in a sink or basin filled with water. Once you’ve tested the device, you’ll be primed to capture amazing underwater images of your epic waterborne adventures.
