What is peat free compost?
Peat is a natural product consisting of composted plants and mosses from peat bogs. Peat extraction kills swamps, while swamps are incredibly important for carbon storage. Moreover, a dead swamp area creates more carbon in the atmosphere. It's ecological vandalism, more or less. Because of the huge peat extraction, there is less peat left for the wildlife and some species are in danger of becoming extinct. Peat free compost blends soil, organic matter, and composting particles together to increase structure in the soil and add a more mineral-rich soil product to the garden, without harming the planet.
Why use peat free compost?
To prevent the soil from becoming exhausted and the soil structure from deteriorating, it is advisable to add compost. Due to extensive exhaustion of your garden soil, at a certain point, it will lack many important nutrients. This as a result disrupts the natural process. Plant-based composts are designed to provide plants with the best nutrients. Since peat can retain water and nutrients very well, it has always been an important component of compost. Until now. The carbon in peat, when spread on a field or garden, quickly turns into carbon dioxide, adding to greenhouse gas levels and accelerating climate change. Peat free compost is made with other types of composted biomass that do less harm to the world than peat, like wood, coir and green compost, while still doing its job as it should.
