mossaic = moss + mosaic
mossaic was founded with a focus on reducing carbon emissions and filtering pollutants with moss as a primary asset.
with the elements of earth piecing together like a mosaic, and moss blanketing many spaces around the earth, our name has the best of both worlds.
we are 501(c)(3) certified and fiscally sponsored by hack+.

our team aspires to see notable change by developing cutting-edge alternatives to everyday products using moss-based solutions.
since moss requires little to no maintenance and is highly effective, we believe our initiative can be a considerable asset in reversing the effects of greenhouse gases.
the hourglass on our landing page— and our logo— is representative of the damage our planet has already undertaken and the thin margin of time remaining to reverse it.
moss, that seemingly annoying shrub growing everywhere, has a substantial role in reducing carbon emissions.
moss reduces carbon emissions by absorbing carbon dioxide and filtering other toxic pollutants that range from the size of .1 microns to 10 microns.
we use a genus of moss called sphagnum (i.e. peat moss) due to its superior filtration of toxic pollutants.
not so annoying after all.
