Making coconut bowls

How are coconut bowls made?

Coconut shells are hand crafted from mature coconuts after the edible parts have been harvested. 

Currently in many countries the coconut shell is wasted and is subjected to open burning which contributes significantly to air pollution and causes a terrible health hazard to humans and animals.

Coconuts Burning

Each year billions of coconuts are harvested for coconut oil, bio-fuel, water and their tasty white flesh, while 99% of the coconut shells are discarded and burned as waste.

Most coconuts are reclaimed from the agriculture industry that treat coconut shells as a by product after they have extracted the flesh, water, oil and husk.

Coconut Bowls for the farm

For a coconut shell to be hard enough to use as a bowl, the coconuts must be mature and strong. Local craftsmen then cut, clean and sand the coconut shells, finish them in an organic virgin coconut oil polish, turning them into beautiful coconut bowls that you can eat from.

Beautiful Coconut Bowls

With billions of plastic containers ending up as landfill every year, it’s important that as a society we begin to reject plastic solutions in favor of eco-friendly alternatives.

Hi and thanks for your question.

The answer is NO, there is nothing toxic or artificial used in the creation of our coconut bowls. They are manufactured in Vietnam and Bali and do require fumigation from customs to enter Australia.

We clean and wipe every bowl with coconut oil to remove these nasties before we send them off to our customers.

Hope that helps


I am searching the internet trying to find out if these coconut shells have pesticides on them….and further more, if they are fumigated when they are imported?
