Mosses are non-vascular plants that absorb nutrients and water due to their rootless structure, growing over surfaces, and reproducing vastly. These plants are the green lungs of the earth, as they cover massive surface areas and can catch pollutants, including carbon dioxide. Moss walls are natural air purifiers and coolers that take advantage of the oxygenizing and cleansing capabilities of mosses.

Anti-pollution moss culture can contain more than 1000 pots of moss and can extract particulate matter, soot, dirt, and other pollutants from the air. These structures are equipped with solar-powered sensors to facilitate remote monitoring in case of diseases or any abnormal behavior of moss culture, and rainwater collectors to pump water back into the soil, thus creating an irrigating system.
