A simple, compact, and low-maintenance living agent that can do the work of a small forest – harvest CO2, fix nitrogen, pull many other toxins from the air and, crucially, give off oxygen – could transform the air quality in cities right where the worst pollution is found. As it happens, moss is does all of that and more.

What if we told you that a huge portion of…
Last issue, we discussed Submerged Value and made a point of noting how significant a chunk of the total value of sustainable actions it represented.
