Making Ecoroot the number one choice for your plants can help us all contribute to saving our environment. Ecoroot uses hydroculture technology, growing the plants in a soilless medium and thus negating the consumption of valuable natural resources.
Instead of a peat-based medium, Ecoroot uses capillary action to spread nutrients and sustain the plant. The plant is set in expanded clay granules and nutrition is received through a supply of specially formulated slow-release Folia Feed. Due to way they are grown, Ecoroot plants are typically more robust and efficient than traditional planting – resulting in more toxins cleansed from the environment, greater oxygen output and humidification – as well as looking great in any environment.
Sophisticated composts do wonders for our plants but disturbance of our planet’s peatlands damage the wider environment. Peatlands are not only a habitat for distinctive flora and fauna, they are also a natural carbon storage system; it is estimated that the world’s peatlands contain 180 to 455 billion metric tonnes of sequestered carbon and when the land is disturbed, carbon is released into the atmosphere – damaging the Ozone layer. Ecoroot aids sustainability by eliminating the need for compost excavated from peatlands – when the environment is at stake, this is surely the sustainable choice.
Ecoroot™ is also the perfect solution for hygiene-sensitive areas where soil-based plants are not an option. As a natural substance, soil is susceptible to moulds, fungi and insects which, although normally treatable, are a risk in certain environments such as hospitals and laboratories, Ecoroot™ plants offer an ideal hygienic solution so you can still enjoy beautiful plants without the risk of contamination.
Premier Planters are the exclusive providers of Ecoroot™. Dedicated to cutting emissions, preserving fossil fuels and our natural carbon storage, we have also recently installed a solar photovoltaic system on the roof of our offices which now generates a significant amount of our electricity.
