A Palestinian farmer rides a tractor as he distributes feed to cows at the Jebrini dairy farm in the West Bank town of Hebron, where cow dung is used to produce electricity as an alternative power source, on April 10, 2017. Power comes in many forms, but Palestinian cattle farmer Kamal al-Jebrini's family looked to where others may fear to tread for a new source of it: cow dung. The family has begun recycling waste from its cows to produce electricity for one of the largest Palestinian dairy plants and even to provide power to some houses. The project in the occupied West Bank is the first of its kind in the Palestinian territories, where renewable energy usually means solar panels. Photo credit: AFP / HAZEM BADER / Getty Images.

Workers begin the installation of the 'Green Corridor' at Avenida 23 de Maio on April 08, 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The structure will receive about 30 species of plants and foliage, such as basil, heart broken, rosemary, brillianth, English carpet, oregano, iris, coleus, among others. "It will be a new reference in the life of the city. It is an action that shows the humanization of the city, with the goal of beautifying and preserving the capital," said Mayor João Doria. The Green Corridor will cover the walls of Avenida 23 de Maio with vertical gardens. 11.000 m2 of gray walls will gain a new life and improve the daily commute of almost 100 thousand vehicles that circulate there every day.
