The paper reviews the essential roles of reinvention technology, focusing on the use of plants for design and process in environmental sanitation. Phytostructure consists of greenspace area and distribution which are addressed to sequestrate carbon dioxide released by human activities and to prevent environmental impact respectively. Cities may conduct an assessment for the required area based on population number and its distribution according to the local physical conditions. Phytoprocesses are controlling factors for quality of environmental resources to save quantity and sustainability. Conservative substances will be controlled by phytostabilization followed by rhizofiltration, phytoextraction and phytovolatilization to some extent, while non-conservative contaminants will undergo all processes. Phytosacrifice to disaster offers innovations in impact prevention due to natural disaster. Lesson from the extent of tsunami wave height, travel distance, and in analogy to open channel flow, it can be expected that coastal greenspace is promising measure to suppress wave travel into inland. Phytotoxicology is essential for using wastewater irrigation that should not create a risk towards crops. General assurance for safe and healthy living components and environmental media are addressed as well by the subject. These are challenging subjects in scientific innovations and can be put in reality for international consensus on sustainable development.
