Helping to reduce global warming and learning about sustainability just got quick and easy with the PlantBest Healthy Planet Tree Planting Kit™ – a new product that uses coconut husks for planting tree seeds. Planting a tree is an important step in helping to reduce global warming. What the tree seed is planted in is important too. Hyper-renewable coir (pronounced “koi’er”) - the spent rind of coconuts - is a sustainable alternative planting medium to peat moss. The new tree planting kit gets kids and families involved in helping to reduce global warming in a more sustainable way. The kit is now available through RONA’s western Canadian big box stores and by order at HOME HARDWARE stores. School groups can also visit www.PlantBest.com to order classroom size quantities.
“Introducing children to the idea that a seed planted might one day become a tree that will help the health of the planet is a very important concept.” says Marjorie Harris, a leading gardening writer. “The Healthy Planet Kit makes it a lot easier for them to understand this idea and get the hands-on experience of growing a plant.”
What kids and families can learn and experience:
1. How to plant a tree from seed and experience the joy and wonder of sprouting for the “first time”.
2. Trees beautify, shade and have long lasting, deep rooted emotional impact. Just ask the person who planted a tree as a child. In adulthood, many go back and visit the tree over their lifetime.
3. Trees help the planet by reducing global warming. They absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen – 2 mature trees provide enough oxygen for family of four.
4. Planting in coir is a more sustainable alternative to peat moss. When it takes up to 220 years for peat bogs to re-grow and continue to store carbon and filter fresh water, the planet needs its peat bog ecosystems to remain intact and undisturbed.
5. Coir retains more water than peat moss – you water less.
Priced at less than $3.00, the Healthy Planet Tree Planting Kit is 100% complete - you just add water.
The kit contains:
· Douglas Fir Tree seeds.
· Biodegradable QuickStart™ Coir Planting Pellet and biodegradable QuickStart™ Coir Pot

· Tree Facts for the whole family.
· 100% Guarantee
· Minimalist biodegradable packaging

This product rings true to its name; it’s an environmentally friendly alternative way to plant a tree. After the tree seed sprouts, the entire sapling, coir and all, goes into the ground to give the tree a healthy start in the soil outdoors. Coir is fast gaining international notoriety for its eco-friendly horticultural applications. American rose growers are raving about it and Dutch farmers have been using it with great success for years.
