PittMoss on Shark Tank

Peat Moss vs Pitt Moss - Episode  627 - 4/17/2015

Pitt Moos vs Peat Moss
Inventor of the PittMoss, Mont Handley on
the Shark Tank in Episode 627, 4/17/2015
  It may have taken over twenty years testing and perfecting a recyclable product comparable to Peat Moss, but that's what Mont Handley, the inventor of Pitt Moss and newest Shark Tank Contestant has done. Did you know the U.S. imports over a million tons of Sphagnum Peat Moss from Canada each year? Did you also know Peat Moss is harvested in wetlands helping control global carbon we're putting in the atmosphere? We are literally destroying critical habitats for the sole purpose of helping grow house plants more efficiently

Compared to harvesting Sphagnum Peat Moss that's not helping our planet in any way, the Pitt Moss is made of a mixture of organic additives and recycled paper. The cost to consumers is comparable in price and always a "very good thing" for any recycled product. But the main benefit using PittMoss compared to Peat Moss, is the product has proven to be superior in a variety of case studies and experiments from large nurseries.

In the PittMoss Casting tape, Mont Handley did for the Shark Tank, brings up a few very good points how the exploitation of Peat-land's is contributing over a billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere every year. We are literally risking climate change to fill flowerpots! As far as Shark Tank Casting Videos go, this has to be a record for the shortest pitch I've ever seen. But when you have a revolutionary product that can change the World, what more does He need to say?

PittMoss Reviews before Shark Tank Appearance

  Some folks might already be familiar with PittMoss when it was Branded with the Nupeat name. Apparently, the word "peat" is a trademarked term when referring to Peat Moss, and Mont was advised to change the NuPeat name. Considering all the recycled paper originated in Pittsburgh, Handley decided to name his superior product Pitt Moss.

The Biz Journals recently did an update for PittMoss in February, 2015 with a few interesting facts before this becomes an Official Shark Tank Product. According to the article, Pitt Moss recently raised $1.2 million from investors including Blue Tree Allied Angels, Innovation Works, Idea Foundry, Independent Investor Mathew Schneider and an unidentified Super Angel Investor from Texas. Hmm, isn't the wealthiest Shark on the Shark Tank from Texas? That has to be a coincidence, right?

Mont has been frequently posting on FaceBook about his appearance on Shark Tank, which is always a good sign. But during the promotional video for Episode 627, Handely flat out tells the Sharks "the valuation and sales numbers suck for the PittMoss Business". Ah yes, maybe that part could have been left out.

Deal or no deal on the Shark Tank, the Pitt Moss is starting to grow like a weed increasing production ten-fold in the past few Months. It may have taken Mont over 20 years to get finally to this point, but with a revolutionary product made with recycled materials, the entire World will now benefit for many generations to come. Why keep destroying valuable habitat meant for our survival if there's a better alternative than using Peat Moss?
