You have probably seen moss growing on rocks or trees in your backyard, but have you ever seen it covering the interior walls of an office building? If not, you will soon because these “vertical gardens'' are becoming increasingly popular and for good reason. They are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they also have soundproofing, odor absorbing and air purifying qualities that can help improve office and home environments.

On this episode of RENEWables, we sit down with Kasey Riley, Co-founder of The Fat Plant Society and Vince Basso, to learn more about moss art and their biophilic design approach for creating working and living environments that offer an advantage of the restorative and motivational power of nature. Studies show that exposure to nature has been linked to improved attention, lower stress, better mood, reduced risk of psychiatric disorders and even upticks in empathy and cooperation. The key to sustainable and functional biophilic design is the inclusion of nature itself and these interior moss walls are a reminder that you are never far from the forest!
