Sustainable nutrition is a hot topic these days, and rightly so. Shopping locally, consuming seasonal products, and removing pre-packaged foods and disposable plastics from our lives are all vital to reducing our environmental footprint.
What are coconut bowls?
Coconut bowls are beautiful, eco-friendly bowls made by hand from discarded real coconut shells. These bowls have an incredible impact - not only do they save millions of coconut shells from being dumped in landfills each year, but they are also 100% natural, free of BPA, toxins, synthetics and plastics and extremely safe for you and the environment. Not to mention how amazing they naturally look - they will work wonders for the planet and the "Instagrammability" of your smoothie bowl!
The journey of a coconut bowl
The coconut industry in countries like Vietnam is booming, harvesting coconuts for their flesh, water, sugar and oil. Unfortunately, 99% of the shells are discarded and incinerated as waste - billions of shells each year. Combustion of these shells contributes significantly to CO2 and methane emissions that are harmful to animals, humans and the environment, while also missing the opportunity to make the most of natural resources.
Food Styling Secrets - Make every dish beautiful
The coconut bowls sold come from these very shells, which have been recovered, cleaned, cut, grated and finally turned into usable bowls, before being polished with organic virgin coconut oil. Each bowl is different, with all the cracks, marks and dents of a real coconut. When you buy a coconut bowl, you have the satisfaction of knowing that its imperfections make it uniquely yours. That's very nice, isn't it?
Supporting local communities
The whole process of processing coconut in bowls and other useful items is done by family farms in Vietnam. In this way the economy of the local community is supported.
There are endless colorful and delicious meals to enjoy in your bowls, such as stir-fries, sushi, curry, salads, smoothie bowls, desserts and much more! These bowls are designed to accommodate food of all kinds. So be imaginative @, cook and take a photo to join the #ecosophersunite community.
