Are moss walls really made of the stuff that grows on rocks?

Yes! They are made from a plant we call reindeer or caribou moss, but this is actually a form of lichen, one of the world’s most ancient plant forms. Good Earth Plant Company sources its moss products from around the world, but we primarily get our materials from the U.S. and Canada. One of our major suppliers of pre-made moss panels is located in Italy. Its natural lichen is sustainably grown and harvested in the Netherlands, and then preserved and dyed in France using a nontoxic resin.

Some companies harvest wild moss or lichen, which can have a negative impact on the local environment. We are very careful to know out sources. Make sure the supply for your wall is eco-friendly and responsible.
