Harnessing the Power of Coconut Husk

People have been using coconut husk for centuries. The list of uses is vast, from brushes, to floormats, to soil, but at Loco4Coco we sell high quality coconut husk primarily for gardening use.

You'll hear coconut husk referred to as coco peatcoir pith, coir fibre pith, coir dust, or simply coir. It's all made from coconut husks, the fibrous material found between the hard, internal shell and the outer coat of a coconut. The difference is in the processing.

Loco4Coco sells coconut husk in both Peat and Chip form.

Coco Peat consists of the coir fibre pith or coir dust which is obtained by processing coconut husk and removing the long fibres.

Coco Chips are the complete coconut husk, both the long fibers and the pith, cut into small chunks, resembling wood chips.

Both Coco Peat and Coco Chips can hold large quantities of water, just like a sponge, and both carry an almost neutral pH. They are used as a replacement for traditional peat in soil mixtures, or, as a soil-less substrate for plant cultivation.

We offer you this sustainable product to help you with your gardening needs and to help conserve the environment.
