You look around your house and neighborhood at all the driveways and sidewalks and concrete patios…thinking to yourself that you are now living in a Concrete Jungle. You realize that in relation to the urbanization of our cities, the decline of our health of our environment in increasing. It seems hotter than before and precious water runs off the concrete and into the storm drains carrying pesticides and pollution along with it, poisoning our water supply.
Guess what? You’re not crazy…all those neat driveways, streets and sidewalks trap heat and make the area an oven. It also keeps rain water from being absorbed by the grass and landscaping and washes chemicals right into the sewer system.
