Wood charcoal can be added to your soil mixes to aid in filtration, absorption, and drainage of water. It benefits plants by increasing soil fertility through its ability to retain water and nutrients, and by reducing the release of nitrous oxide and methane from soil. Prevents over-fertilization and is ideal for terrarium and house plant use.
Our Charcoal product is packaged in recycled paper bags that are 60% compostable and 40% biodegradable. These bags are lined with PLA, a biodegradable, corn-based material that strengthens and improves the durability of the bag. While PLA is compostable in many jurisdictions, it is not yet accepted in Vancouver’s green bin program. Please responsibly dispose of these bags by placing them in the trash.
