PittMoss started as a humble kitchen experiment in 1994 and quickly evolved into founder Mont Handley’s passionate, lifelong project. Soon after graduating from the kitchen to the garage, PittMoss® secured an EPA SBIR grant. This funded critical growth trials, providing the scientific evidence and the foundation for PittMoss® patents.
PittMoss is a mix of proprietary additives and recycled paper rescued from dwindling landfill space.
Each plant grown in PittMoss® reduces our reliance on the million tons of sphagnum peat moss imported to the U.S. each year – use of which results in untold negative effects on our environment.
