Coconut Bowls

Eco-friendly bowls handmade from real coconuts

MISSION & VALUES

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. 

Coconut Bowls are a little piece of tropical paradise that you can bring to your kitchen.

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. 

Every coconut bowl is unique with its own shape, size, marking and imperfections. They’re one in a billion, just like you. That means when you buy a coconut bowl, nobody else in the world will have a bowl just like yours. Now that’s pretty cool, isn’t it!

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.
