Coconuts have been shown to positively impact our bodies, from the way we look to the way we feel, to our health and longevity. Eating coconuts increases energy, helps with heart and bone health, as well as promotes a healthy weight. However, making use of the other parts of the coconut such as the shells through coconut bowls and the like can also benefit our lives and the environment. Below are the top 5 benefits of sustainable coconut products.
Sustainable coconut products are biodegradable, which means they break down at a faster rate than other materials. As they break down the products change into organic materials which are safe for the environment and avoid adding to our landfills.
Reduce Single-Use Plastic
By now, we’re all aware of the devastating impact that single-use plastics have on the environment. These disposable plastics are not biodegradable, and when they do break down into microparticles, they contaminate not only our environment but our water and food sources. Single-use plastics end up in our landfills and are more likely to cause harm to our oceans or wildlife. By using sustainable coconut products, we can reduce harm and keep our oceans clean.
All Natural And Organic
What we use in our daily life can either positively or negatively impact our health, and by opting to use sustainable coconut products, made from natural sources, you're ensuring your safety. Other utensils, cookware, and dishware can lead to copper toxicity and other harmful health issues, whereas coconut bowls are made entirely out of the shells of used coconuts. What’s more, products like coconut bowls are polished using all-natural coconut oil, meaning they are 100% organic and safe for long-term use.
Sustainable coconut products are made from “waste products”, meaning the discarded shells of coconuts that wouldn’t otherwise be used. Many refer to sustainable coconut bowls as a shining symbol of sustainability because they are entirely waste-free. By repurposing the shells into beautiful, and more importantly useful, products we avoid having to burn them or sending anything to a landfill.
They Inspire Others
Beyond the environmental benefits, coconut products inspire others to live a more sustainable life. Coconut bowls, spoons, and even teapots show just how easy it can be to repose and reuse items to create delightful products.
If you are looking for something all-natural and organic, safe for long-term uses, that lessens your carbon footprint and inspires others to do the same, sustainable coconut products are the way to go. These repurposed products are not only adorable, but they help leave the world in a better state than we found it.
