our coconuts are harvested every 45 days, unlike peat which takes centuries to develop.

what is coir?

Made from the husks of coconuts, coir compost is one of the most environmentally friendly composts you can buy. When it comes to this hairy fruit, nothing goes to waste. The white centre is used for food or cosmetics, the long fibres of the husk are turned into ropes, brushes or matting and the shorter fibres are used for compost. These fibres are collectively called coir. Coir compost performs so well due to its superb absorption properties, making it very efficient at retaining nutrients vital for a plant’s growth.

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. After production, the coir compost is dehydrated, compressed to the correct size and packaged. All the grower needs to do on receipt is add water and start planting.

for peat's sake! was set up by me, George, following 3 years of studying Environmental Geography at university. During this time, I encountered the recurring theme of the relationship between our human need for resources and the decline of environmental health. I decided to discover more about peatlands, their importance to our planet and how they're treated.

I was shocked by what I found, particularly the continual destruction of peatlands for compost manufacturing. This spurred me on 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, I founded for peat's sake! with the mission of providing everyone with sustainable compost that's good for the planet, your plants and you.
