Natural Coconut Shell
‘AS A COMPANY THAT STRIVES TO SUPPORT SUSTAINABILITY, ALL THREE PILLARS OF SUSTAINABILITY ARE INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT TO US. ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS PLANET, PEOPLE AND PROFITS.’
While in Bali in 2015, founder Jake, asked himself stumbled across coconut shell handicrafts at a local market. He discovered that local craftspeople were carving and painting coconut shells, and selling them to tourists as souvenirs.
Jake wondered if these very same coconut shells could be used to eat from. The thought of what happened to coconut shells after the flesh has been taken out had never entered his mind until then.
Through research, Jake discovered that billions of these shells were going to waste every year. As a bi-product of the thriving coconut industry, coconut shells have traditionally been burned or discarded as landfill. He thought it was interesting that these shells – shaped almost perfectly to be used as a bowl – were considered waste.
A local craftsman taught Jake that coconut shells have been used as bowls in his, and many other villages for hundreds of years, thus Coconut bowls was born!
After selling their first bowl in January 2016, Coconut Bowls now reclaim over 10,000 discarded coconut shells every month. They purchase them from coconut farmers who had previously spent precious money and resources on the waste process.
These coconut shells are then taken one of their ethical workshops in Vietnam and Indonesia, where they employ local craftspeople at well above fair trade standards. The team cuts, sands and polishes these coconut shells into beautiful coconut bowls that are food safe, reusable and can last a lifetime. We think they’re the perfect eco-friendly addition to any kitchen.
Every coconut bowl is unique, with its own shape, size, markings and imperfections. They’re one in a billion! This means that nobody else in the world will have the same coconut bowl. Now that’s pretty cool, isn’t it?
