UK: Garden Organic lobbies to make voluntary peat reduction targets mandatory

Garden Organic have launched a new campaign which aims to end the use of peat in horticulture.

To date over 95% of the UK’s peat bogs have been degraded or lost. This wipes out ecosystems - including wild areas that are home to plants, birds and insects, and also increases carbon emissions.

As part of the campaign Garden Organic will be lobbying Defra to make voluntary reduction targets mandatory.
