Peat used in our compost is dug out of wild places, damaging some of the last remaining peatlands in the UK and overseas. This process also releases carbon into the atmosphere, accelerating climate change.
Peatlands are vital wildlife habitats and it’s absolutely crucial that they remain intact to help us tackle climate change.
We want to see a complete end to peat-based compost being sold in Sheffield and Rotherham.
Go peat-free here:
Heeley City Farm, Richards Road, Sheffield, S2 3DT.
The Potting Shed micro nursery, Kenbourne Rd, Netheredge, Sheffield. Not currently selling compost, but committed to growing plants organically and in peat free compost.
Co-op food stores and forecourts.
*We have not checked these places ourselves and rely on community feedback to create and update the list. Please help us by emailing any additional information to firstname.lastname@example.org
