MPS potting soil certificate

For good quality, safe potting soil with a sustainable character

The 'MPS potting soil certificate' has been specially developed by MPS for producers of sustainable potting soil intended for the consumer market. Apart from quality control, sustainability of the potting soil is also verified.

Purpose of the certification scheme

The purpose of the MPS scheme is to produce the most natural and sustainable potting soil possible, safeguarding functional requirements in relation to quality. The scheme stimulates the sustainable extraction of raw materials and production of the potting soil. This is achieved partly by:

- stimulating the use of renewable raw materials,

- limiting environmental risks (reclamation of peat and responsible extraction of raw materials, use of organic fertilisers),

- certification of a potting soil with better 'environmental performance'.

Raw materials which are subject to these requirements include: sand, clay, coconut fibre, peat, compost, bark, lava, wood fibre and rice hull. Requirements also apply to fertilisers and other additives, and the packaging for the potting soil.
