Moss removal on roof

I live in Oregon in a manufactured home in the woods. We have a little bit of moss beginning to grow on the roof (shingle) and have been told to use zinc strips. We would like to understand what kind of effect or impact there may be to the environment. We live at the top of a small mountain, and what we do would effet water quality to ourselves and others downhill from us. Is there a natural way to remove and then avoid moss growth?

Thank you.

Zinc oxide strips are a very good way to stop moss and algae growth and are very easy to find and install. Although I do not know the full environmental impact of the water supply or to others down hill but they are advertised to be non-toxic. Also some shingle manufacturers have zinc or copper coated granules on the surface to stop this problem from occuring.
