Beirut Wants To Go Green

…About time! It’s been ages since our dear capital has been smeared with pollution and environment reports, blackening our days and dumping our good mood.

Sure, green wholesale NBA jerseys buildings have been among the talks of the public for quite some time now [.pdf] yet as Nader Nakib, CEO of green building consultancy group G-Building, states “The wealthy are simply pioneers helping to mainstream green buildings into the Lebanese street”, hoping that going green would be a trend that would eventually be too mainstream to raise interest among the Lebanese.

The study showed worrying numbers looming, with 100,000 Need cars being introduced to the streets every year and nothing to change the wholesale mlb jerseys environmental status CC! quo, not mentioning the rest of the baggage that comes with this number.

The spotlight wholesale jerseys lands on Wassim Melki, an architect that was influenced by the capital’s harsh reality and teamed up with local NGO ReAct with a mission to plant 60,000 trees on beirut’s rooftops. With 15,000 suitable plateaus, Melki claims that simple techniques of placing medium and large trees in pots would suffice to complete the process. It’s up to the public to Jerseys criticize Online or support the project, hoping some beam of hope would shine through the deep smog of our beloved Beirut.
