The Coconut Boom

The Coconut Boom

There is no denying the fact that the world has gone crazy for coconuts! In the UK alone, coconut oil sales were approximately £16.4m in 2016. This figure has increased by 1,500% in just 4 years!

Billions of coconuts are harvested a year.

The increase in consumer demand for coconuts, has been propelled by the growing popularity for coconut products such as; oil, milk, water and cosmetics etc. Despite this growing trend… there has sadly been an increase in coconut waste, which is not only a waste of resources but also hazardous damage to our planet.

The unwanted coconut shells are discarded, burned as waste and sent to landfill, which is contributing significantly to the increase in Co2 and Methane emissions. This is not only damaging our planet but is also endangering our wildlife and communities.

Coconut palm trees live for over 50 years before they stop producing coconuts. At which point they are chopped down and replaced in order to start the coconut cycle all over again. The unwanted palm wood is often burned and not recycled – despite it having many uses. 

What we’re doing to help.

We have sourced and recycled unwanted coconut shells and coconut palm wood, to create completely natural, eco-friendly, reusable and sustainable Coconut Bowls and Spoons.

And it’s true… whenever we think about coconuts we imagine palm trees, blue sea and white sand, which is our ultimate paradise! Now, you can bring that paradise straight to your kitchen at home and enjoy your favourite meals with the tropics at mind.

What makes the Coconut Bowl even more special is that it is just like you and me. It has its own individual features… markings, shape and size. Not one Coconut Bowl will ever look the same!

We value most what our amazing planet has provided us with and we promise to always encourage and contribute to global sustainability. By recycling unwanted coconut waste, we are actively helping our world become more sustainable and by doing this, we are raising awareness how we can help make a difference.
