SMITHFIELD, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Moss Pure was founded at a startup competition at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT Lebanon Challenge), where it won First Place Startup in 2020. While at the MIT competition, the company’s founder realized that the moss wall market was in demand and that live moss has tremendous benefits. But no other company was using live moss. Most moss wall art and decor companies use preserved moss, which is no longer living. Preserved moss cannot be used as an air filter since the moss is no longer alive. Using patent pending science, Moss Pure is the first and only company to use live moss as an air filter, stress relief device, and aesthetically pleasing decor piece for your home and business. Best of all, no watering, sunlight, or maintenance is needed.
With no need for watering, Moss Pure sustains life by absorbing the nutrients in the air around it, and in doing so, filters the surrounding air - this includes carbon dioxide, allergens, volatile organic compounds, bacteria, viruses, and specific metals. In fact, air quality testing demonstrated that just one square foot of Moss Pure captures 30% of carbon dioxide within 2 minutes. Moss Pure also captures millions of pollutant particulates that commonly contribute to allergies, asthma, respiratory disease, and even cancer. Moss Pure uses innovative biological engineering to go above and beyond biophilic design. Using patent pending science, Moss Pure engages not only your vision, but touch and smell senses to reduce stress and anxiety and increase your productivity.
The live moss air filters are made in the USA with 95% sustainable and eco-friendly material, with the Zigzag frame being comprised of 100% reclaimed wood. With the consistent and rising popularity of more eco and nature forward solutions in the home and office, both for utility and decoration, Moss Pure is innovating a new path of truly remarkable benefits born out of the pure and simple gift of the humble moss plant. No electricity, no upkeep, just simple, therapeutic, and beautiful nature reimagined.
