As the councils have to recycle more and more, peat-free compost is likely to get worse, not better.
On the one hand people say use less peat, and insist we recycle more, so this is the result.
Complaining will not get you very far. Soon all compost will be made of recycled stuff; if you feel guilty every time you pick up a bag of peaty stuff you have to put up with it.
Though I was amused in a wry way to see 'enriched with recycled materials' on a bag of Levingtons.
