The EPA reports that water managers in 40 of 50 states expect water shortages in the next 10 years. PittMoss can help. PittMoss is made with a unique engineered fiber that has superior water holding qualities. It's physical properties stop the water from running off and instead, store the water to release it back to the plant when needed. Not only does it increase the time between watering, it also manages the water more efficiently.
PittMoss is made from engineered up-cycled cellulosic fibers, like newspaper, that would ordinarily end up in a landfill.
Peat is harvested from peatlands, which is considered to be the world's largest terrestrial organic carbon stock. Peatlands are also important and fragile ecosystems, like rain forests, they are a hub for rich bio-diversity. Nearly all peat is imported, further increasing its carbon foot-print.
PittMoss has no toxic components. Its unique properties reduce reliance on surfacants, fertilizers and other chemical additives.
PittMoss holds onto any applied inputs. Similar to it's ability to retain water, PittMoss reduces the amount of leaching that would typically occur.
