London is the latest city to gain a city bench with the ability to absorb as much pollution as a small forest. The vertical garden, which doubles as a bench, is Green City Solutions’ CityTree. 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.

The bench has already been installed in cities across Europe and Asia, including Berlin, Oslo, Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Drammen, Newcastle, and Hong Kong. The latest city to gain a CityTree is London near Piccadilly Circus.
