How DC Greenworks is Green
DC Greenworks is dedicated to decreasing waste and pollutants, increasing energy efficiency, and bringing nature back into DC! Their variety of green roofs all work to reduce the amount of storm water runoff and help prevent pollutants from reaching local waterways. Roofs installed by DC Greenworks reduce energy costs for each building, and have a longer life expectancy than non-green roofs.
