Billboards that Consume Carbon Dioxide

I’m not sure how Coca-Cola can ever erase its carbon footprint, but this innovative billboard is a good step regardless. Perhaps Chik-Fil-A can start putting its crazy “Eat More Chik’in” cows on a planted vertical field in the future:

They estimate that the billboard can absorb up to a total of 46,800 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere per year.

Thanks to Jordan Cappella for re-posting Engadget’s post on facebook.

    Interesting. They stuff their product with CO2, which ends up in the atmosphere, and then they plant one billboard to suck in a tiny fraction back?… Who are they kidding? In any case, it´s a nice thought.

    jlua, I was kind of thinking the same thing, and also having thoughts about all the bottled water and what that’s doing to the environment as well. Even so, I thought the billboard was pretty cool, regardless of whether or not it was greenwashing. 75 south in Georgia would look a whole lot better if Soft Hands Massage, Topless Cafes and the Jesus billboards next to them were made of plants.
