This growing medium is peat-free and can be used to support plants in pots. The blocks are made from 100% coconut husk and offer the optimum air to water ratio, encouraging healthy root growth. The coir includes no artificial fertiliser so when planted, should be fed organic proprietary plant food.

Coir is the new peat

Coir is made up of the fibrous husks of the inner shell of a coconut. The coconuts used are harvested around every 45 days, and are usually used by the food and cosmetics industries, leaving coir as a by-product that would otherwise be wasted. The fibres have great moisture retention qualities, are odourless and are sturdy enough to be reused multiple times, so are perfect for growing plants in.

The benefits of coir

There are many benefits to using coir, other than the fact that it's much more sustainable than peat-based compost. Coir is very rot-resistant, taking a lot longer to decompose meaning it lasts a lot longer and can be reused. Coir also allows great air circulation due to its porosity as well as improving moisture retention.

About the brand
for peat's sake!

for peat's sake! was set up by George, following 3 years of studying Environmental Geography at university. During this time, a recurring theme of the relationship between the human's need for resources and the decline of environmental health was made obvious. This lead to him finding out about peatlands, their importance to our planet and how they're treated. Shocked by the continual destruction of peatlands for compost manufacturing, George thought it was vital to spread awareness about the damaging practice of peat harvesting, and offer an affordable, eco-friendly alternative to peat-based composts! Through the support and expertise of family and friends, for peat's sake! took form and is now ready to supply all with a sustainable method of planting!

Sustainability

Coir is renewable (as it grows on trees) unlike peat which takes hundreds of years to form in bogs and marshes. The coir that for peat’s sake uses is made from 100% coconut fibres. It’s washed and buffered, using the industry's first state-of-the-art wastewater recycling facility, to remove unwanted salts that occur naturally.
