The city of Hangzhou, China has come up with a novel way to show off how green their subway is – by installing a load of plants and moss inside one of the carriages.
Although the stunt only rolled around the Hangzhou Metro for a day, it’s a novel way of introducing greenery to transport infrastructure, not unlike the tube’s Underground In Bloom competition.

While the train garden might make the air on board a bit fresher, a mossy ride to work is probably not something you’d want every day. More info
