COIR

Coir, also known as coconut dust or Coco “Peat” is a by-product from the harvesting of coconuts in Southeastern Asia. The long fibers from the husks are used for mats, furniture padding, ropes, and brooms. The short fibers, once considered a waste product, have proven very beneficial in horticulture and provide a sustainable alternative to peat moss. Coir holds moisture well, wets easy, decomposes slow, and drains well.
