Using compost is a great way to give your garden an extra boost, but did you know that certain kinds of compost are linked to environmental destruction? Many of the commercially available compost mixes are made with peat, a finite natural resource that has been mined extensively around the world, leading to the destruction of habitat and the release of carbon emissions. Luckily, there are many peat-free alternatives that are just as beneficial for gardens. Compost Direct developed an infographic that goes over those different types of compost and why it’s so important for gardeners worldwide to make the switch to peat-free composts.
