Fragrant Moss is a strain of moss which has been genetically engineered to produce a calming fragrance in your home using only sunlight, CO2 and water. No more of solvents or toxic chemicals found in other air fresheners, just fragrance made the natural way. When you are done with it, the moss is biodegradable and can be composted.
The moss will be sold in a box made from compostable materials, including a glass terrarium and decorative stones for the moss to grow on. The first scent is patchouli, but we also have lemon, pine and geraniol (which is mosquito repelling) in the pipeline plus more citrus/floral flavors later.
We want the name to convey eco-consiousness, luxury, and to embrace science and the future.

Our fragrant moss isn't just a home air freshener. It's a symbol of the future, a symbol of sustainability, a symbol to inspire others to engineer new living things.
Imagination and innovation are the forces which have advanced our civilization thoughout history. Our generations frontier is synthetic biology, our guide nature itself, the potential is limited only by our greatest imagination.
At TAXA Biotechnology our companies aim is to usher in this new era of consumer biotechnology products. We are futuristically minded and believe that in a few years people will engineer biological apps like fragrant moss just as easily as they engineer mobile apps today. What makes this possible is the tremendous acceleration in technology in the field of synthetic biology. We hope that our products change the discourse and perceptions of GMOs amongst the public, and educate and inspire a new generation of bioengineers.
Our long term vision is that by embracing biotechnology the world can move to a more sustainable future, with a circular economy. A circular economy is one in which the waste from one generation of products provides the input resources for making the next generation so there is no resource extraction from the planet, and no trash to fill landfill or the oceans. Biology is the technology through which we can realize that dream.
