As part of our sustainability policy, we aim to have the largest possible proportion of renewable raw materials in our products. What this exactly means, what the consequences are and how you can recognize these products, are all question we will gladly answer.
Renewable raw materials
Renewable raw materials are materials that grow or are released within a period of maximum 50-100 years. Potting mixtures consists largely of peat. Peat is extracted from marshy areas, where it takes thousands of years before new peat is formed. Pokon acquires peat in a responsible way, but still, from a sustainability perspective, the use of renewable raw materials is desirable. For a number of years now we have been adding wood fibre, coconut husks and bark to our potting mixtures.
