Full description

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.

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!

The coconut shells used to make the bowls are aged 10 months or older. This ensures a hard and strong shell. Each coconut bowl has a diameter of 12-14cm and a depth of approx 6cm. Each coconut bowl can balance flat on a surface. The coconut shells used to make the bowls are reclaim from plantations after the meat and water have been extracted. These coconut shells are then hand-crafted in fairtrade workshops in Indonesia and Vietnam where they are cut, clean and sanded into beautiful bowls that you can eat from. Each bowl is finished with an organic, virgin coconut oil polish - Absolutely nothing artificial is used during the process from coconut to coconut bowl, resulting in a plant-based vegan-friendly bowl.
