Are you a growing media producer?
Use responsibly produced peat
Your Chain of Custody certification allows companies to use the Responsibly Produced Peat label. The RPP label will give customers the assurance that the amount of peat used in the product comes from responsible sources and excludes the risk that illegally extracted peat has been used.
Currently the criteria for the Chain of Custody are still under development and will be made available soon. Feel free to contact us to receive the latest news on this topic.
Are you a grower, retailer or user of growing media?
Ask for RPP certified substrates
An increasing group of customers chooses products made from responsible sources. To respond to their needs you can ask your supplier for substrates containing RPP certified peat.
You can also check where RPP certified peat is produced or used in substrates. Ordering products with the RPP label means you are supporting our goal which is that the amount of peat in these products will be 100% RPP certified peat.
