WHAT IS COIR?

What is coco-peat?

 

Coir is often used as a generic term to define all the parts of the coconut beyond the hard inner shell. Many do not know, however, that suspended in between the fibers is a fine, porous material which acts to insulate the inner part of the coconut called coco-peat. It is also referred to as coco dust or coco pith. This material is very absorbent that is made up of thousands of minute “tubes” which trap and retain liquid.

 

Why are Galuku coir products good for the environment?

 

Coir is environmentally-friendly for the following reasons:

 

  •    Coconuts trees continually produce coconuts and the tree does not need to be cut down for the resource

  •    Any waste from the manufacture of coir products is bio-degradable

  •    Almost all coconut plantations in the world are grown without the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides

  •    All products have no negative environmental disposal problems and most have valuable secondary uses

       prior to disposal

  •    As Galuku coir is manufactured in-situ at our factories that are located within coconut plantations transportation

       is kept to a minimum
