Dear Sir/Madam, 

Please allow me to give some 
information on our product which we are manufacturing from Srilanka. 

Cocopeat is made out of coir fibre which is a natural alternative to Peat 
Moss, Rockwool, Expanded Clay, Perlite Vermiculite, Pumice and other 
Synthetic Foams.  It is 100% organic, enviromentally friendly, economical, 
biodegradable, user friendly, eco friendly and  easily renewable. 

Compared to peat moss - It is 100% organic with renewable resources and no 
chemical compounds, biodegradable, can last upto 3-5 years in the soil, no 
problems with potting machines due to the lack of long fibres, weeds and 
pathogens, no ecological drawbacks. 

Best Suited for: 

- Home gardens 
- Commerical gardens 
- Green houses 
- Large scale farms 

Ideal for: 

- Sowing seeds 
- Cuttings 
- Layering/regeneration 
- Potting 
- Mulching 
- Lawns 
- Vegetable and flower plots etc. 

Soil conditioner for any type of soil: 

- Since it is fibrous, it can break up clay soil, giving friability and 
- Plowing it in to sandy soil improves its texture and retains moisture, 
oxygen and vital nutrients. 
- PH range helps to conditon the soil. 

High Water Holding Capacity: 

- Can hold upto 8-9 times its volume of water. 
- Does not require a wetting agent. 
- Ideal for use in dry areas. 
- Facilitates fertilisation by retaining nutrients in the soil and evenly 
distributing water for the plant to absorb it efficiently. 

I am trying to establish / find a market in North America for the above product
from Srilanka.  If you have any interest please do not hesitate to contact me.

Looking forward to your reply.
