The Details

Name: Moss Cow

Created by: Chris Pointon

Sponsor: Stagecoach East

Design Inspiration

Inspired by the CityTree, this climate-friendly moss cow absorbs CO2 and other pollutants and emits oxygen. The sensor shows the air quality near the cow, which can be compared to other sensors around Cambridge via a website. The aim is to raise awareness of climate-positive changes people can make in their own lives. Created by ‘mission control’ for grassroots initiatives.

Services include the Park & Ride, Guided Busway, Citi network and other rural routes, as well as the Cambridge City Sightseeing bus tour. Stagecoach takes pride in connecting communities and providing them with opportunities to explore their local areas.

More details on the design: The climate-friendly Moss Cow absorbs C02 and other pollutants and emits oxygen. The sensor detects the air quality near the cow, and beams it to a live readout at, where you can also learn more about air pollution and climate change.
