PittMoss based in Ambridge, is giving away free produce seeds to its customers with every purchase of its Plentiful Organic Potting Mix and discounting products to help customers start their own gardens at a time when many are concerned about the food available to their families.
The Ambridge-based company, a 2014 winner of “Shark Tank” — for its environmentally-friendly alternative to peat-based potting soil — is offering packets of seeds for carrots, tomatoes and lettuce with every purchase of its Plentiful Organic Potting Mix, made for gardens or raised beds.
PittMoss is a local company that uses recycled materials for potting mix. They say it can be used for planting veggies in your backyard or a hanging basket without the messiness of dirt.
PittMoss, a product made from recycled paper, is another peat moss-free option. Featured on the ABC TV show Shark Tank in April 2015, this is its first year on the market for non-commercial growers.
In the past, Pitt Moss has only provided its product to commercial growers, but this season Pitt Moss is available locally at garden centers, through Amazon and the company’s website. It’s super absorbent, and doesn’t need to be watered as often as other mediums, because it drains well, Scott says.
Modeled off the fluffy, moisture-retentive qualities of peat, PittMoss is touted as delivering more life-giving materials to plants.TimesOnline.com
A dream more than a decade in the making is about to become a reality, thanks in part to investments from Pittsburgh native and celebrity businessman Mark Cuban.Benzinga.com
