COCO COIR GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY
1/ Sustainable raw materials
We care about the sustainability of our products and the environment. That is why we use organic and natural materials, such as coco coir, which are derived from renewable and recyclable sources.
A coconut tree can produce up to 150 coconuts per year. Nothing goes to waste from the coconut. The husk is used to make fibres for various industries. The leftover coir dust is what we use to make our fine coco substrates. Coco coir can also be reused and converted into soil enhancers. We reduce our carbon footprint by shipping our products in a dry and compressed form.
