Plants For Our Planet

Why Peat Free?

Peat is a phenomenal natural resource for tackling climate change. Global peatlands store more than twice as much carbon as all the world’s forests, trapping this carbon and preventing it from contributing to global warming.

Our aim is to protect our precious peatlands and protect our planet, by not using peat as a growing medium in our houseplants. Our plants are 97% peat free, and we are working on the remaining 3%.

What is peat?

Peat is created by waterlogged soils made of dead or decaying plants. As peat naturally accumulates over time, it forms peatlands (wetland landscapes).
