Tax Peat, Don't Ban It.
Like when landfill tax was introduced, the recycling industry flourished, with peat Parliament should do the same.
Ban on peat without substitute will kill the industry. Taxing as well can cover the peat coming from overseas as in pots with plants.
Now again there is a momentum to ban peat. Peat industry uses 3 millons cubic meters of peat every year.How this volume will be substituted?
Taxing peat as the landfill was will allow the recycling industry to adapt if not, we as consumers will pay the price and will very costly. PAS100 compost will not replace peat.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
