Who Wants Clean “Urban Air”? US! All of US! Glassman’s bamboo billboard can pave the high ways.

Imagine it, an artist leading the way to a sustainable, healthy habitat for urban dwellers everywhere. Where are all the yappers about “change we can breathe in”? Hmm? Where? Never mind them.  This sort of creating is not part of the political playbook for gaining and keeping power.  Gee, what if it was? What if we all demanded clean air around the globe? No exceptions–everywhere. And what if we refused to let politicians play their games as usual? Imagine a better world for ALL living things–not just us humans.  Now. Today. It’s possible.  Just ask Stephen Glassman and his team. Clearly they think it’s possible and doable. If we really want it.

This is not a joke, folks. Stephen Glassman really has the plans for cleaning the air of Los Angeles using BAMBOO! Living, breathing bamboo plant billboards.  Ah the interconnectedness of all things–houseplants for cleaning indoor air and dealing with sick building syndrome, the urban farming revolution gaining ground, greening of urban rooftops and balconies–and now I find that an artist, sculptor Stephen Glassman, wants to  build bamboo air cleaners along LA highways. There’s something in the air. I’m telling you, folks. If Glassman had just a tiny portion of the money spent on the latest round of political bs poured into the last election everyone’s urban air would be CLEAN. Or at least on its way to being much safer for all living things.

We can all do our part to share this dream–because we all have the tools right at our fingertips. Yes, I’m talking about that keyboard under your fingertips.  If nothing else please “share” globally. Our future depends on us. Let’s give the artist a shot at improving our reality. Hmm. Why not?

    Really love the concept…but I’m certain that some groups in LA will complain about the increase bird population drawn by such clean air, etc..:-)

      There are caves full of bat guana for the complainers. 🙂
      And smog, of course.

    Using plants to filter the environment will only keep growing. I can see where some plants that are better absorbers being controversial for being non-natives like many bamboos. Regardless, keep planting trees everyone!

      O yes, Plant More Trees! Oh Al, there’s more to you than styrofoam figures, isn’t there? 🙂
