Coir is a sustainable waste product of the coconut industry. Coco peat is made with the natural fibrous material that is extracted from the husk of the coconut and processed in environmentally sustainable ways. With the ban of peat in horticulture in the UK, given the negative impacts on people and ecosystems in extracting peatlands, there has been renewed interest in the use of coir as an alternative to peat moss. Although it is easy to get confused about the term ‘peat’ in coco peat, it actually refers to a type of coir dust, within the context of coco peat.
