This City Bench Absorbs More Air Pollution Than A Grove Of Trees

Posted by in categories: health, sustainability

Using a vertical installation of moss, the bench can absorb as much pollution as 275 trees in 1 percent of the space.

The World Health Organization estimates that 7 million premature deaths occur each year from air pollution, making it one of the largest environmental health risks in the world.
