Our Equine Elite Bedding is produced using 100% British grown Miscanthus.
Miscanthus is the perfect crop to be used for equine bedding as its capable of absorbing up to three times its own weight in liquid.
Miscanthus is also very beneficial to wildlife as it acts as an excellent wildlife cover. The permanent crop provides shelter to numerous animals. An improved biodiversity of small mammals and insects will also provide food for wildlife.
However, what is truly awesome about Miscanthus is its ability to absorb Co2. The Miscanthus crop acts like a sink swallowing up carbon in order to grow up to 10m in height – for every tonne of Miscanthus produced it can absorb 3.42 tonnes of Co2, thus making Miscanthus a carbon negative crop to grow and process – what Co2 it absorbs outweighs any Co2 produced in the harvesting and processing of it.
So, in short not only do the features of Miscanthus make this THE best equine bedding product on the marketplace performance wise but also THE most environmentally friendly option – we are working to have zero plastic in our packaging so this can truly be THE no.1 environmentally friendly solution.
