Boston ivy would be a natural for building

This is in reference to Viva Bonner’s building in the Empsall Plaza. Please consider planting Boston ivy on this building for the following reasons.

It is inexpensive and the color changes with the season, green in summer to red and yellow in autumn.

It attaches with minuet adhesive pads, not damaging to the structure. It is a natural air purifier, absorbing carbon dioxide, giving off oxygen.

The irregular growth pattern softens the appearance of a less-than-attractive structure. It proved natural habitat for small nesting birds and represents no national culture and makes no political statement.

It’s a natural choice.
