WHY I LOVE COCONUT BOWLS
I really believe that nothing we use should last on this planet for longer than we get to be passengers on this beautiful Earth. Thinik about how many belongings one person has and now think about all the people in the world, it's mind blowing right!
I love the thought that these coconut bowls can go straight in your compost heap when they've reached the end of their life, and it gives back to the Earth!
Not only that, these coconut bowls are made from reclaimed coconuts that people threw away! So you've given that coconut another life before it can go back into the circle of life! Awesome right!
ABOUT COCONUT BOWLS
Of the billions of coconuts harvested each year for the coconut oil, water and flesh industries, 99% of their shells are discarded and burned as waste. We're up-cycling these shells into beautiful eco-friendly bowls made from real coconuts. With billions of plastic containers also ending up as landfill every year, it’s important that society begins to reject plastic solutions in favour of plant based alternatives.
THE BURNING OF COCONUT SHELLS IS NOT ONLY A WASTE OF NATURAL RESOURCES, IT ALSO CONTRIBUTES SIGNIFICANTLY TO CO2 & METHANE EMISSIONS.
While coconut husk (the hairy outside of the coconut shell) is an attractive biomass fuel and is also a good source of charcoal, the smoke from coconut shells is an environmental hazard (with it's CO2 and methane emissions), and also a health hazard to humans and animals.
We reclaim our coconut shells from companies that treat them as a bi-product after their flesh and water have been extracted. Our craftsman then cut, cleans and sand the coconut shells, turning them into beautiful coconut bowls that you can eat from. Each Coconut Bowl is then finished with an organic virgin coconut oil polish.
We support fair trade practices and currently have workshops in Indonesia and Vietnam, and plan to expand this further to more countries where there is a commercial coconut industry. While we currently employ many craftsman from the local communities that we work with, we are also developing an initiative that is bigger than us that will allow you to measure your impact from reclaiming a coconut bowl.
By purchasing our products, you are actively supporting global sustainability. While we happened to shine them up a little for you, your contribution helps create the cultural change that we are working towards on a global scale. The world thanks you, and so do we.
