What a year it's been! From getting our B Corporation certification, to travelling to the worlds oldest rainforest and selling our 1 millionth product, we've had a lot to celebrate.
We want to extend our thanks to everyone in our amazing coco community, who made the following highlights possible.
Without YOU, none of this would have been possible! We are committed to a better future for all people and our planet in 2022 and beyond! Will you join us?
By becoming a Certified B Corporation we’ve joined a global movement of people harnessing the power of business, to turn profits and growth into positive impact for employees, communities, and the environment.
SO WHAT IS A B CORP?
“Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.” - B Corp
The Coconut Bowls team travelled to northern Queensland, as part of our Beyond the Bowl project, to connect with our 1% for the Planet donation partners and to physically enact our values as a sustainable business through beach clean ups and tree planting events.
In May, we sold our MILLIONTH product!! Thats one million reusable, friendly and natural products brought into homes around the world, replacing single-use and inspiring people around the globe to connect to nature, live sustainably and eat healthier!
In August, our Founder, Jake and his wife Renee welcomed the beautiful Mahli into their lives.
Our Partnerships Manager, Harry and his fiancé Sanna welcomed their beautiful boy August into the world 2 weeks ago.
Congratulations Jake and Harry!
To celebrate Lunar New Year and thank our amazing artisans in Vietnam for all of their hard word in crafting our eco friendly products, we're proud to announce the creation of our artisan education fund. An initiative that will cover the costs of their children's tuition and schooling fees this year.
Every Coconut Bowls product purchased over a weekend in February, directly contributed to this initiative, our founding members of our education fund are acknowledged here.
The Tropical Collection in collaboration with Salty Luxe. Inspired by Salty Luxe’s deep love for the ocean and sunny days under the palms, Sarah designed this beautiful collection to bring magical tropical vibes into homes around the globe, no matter the weather!
We donated $1,041 to Sea Shepherd to support World Oceans Day during this campaign.
In Plastic Free July we launched the world’s most sustainable and innovative Mermaid Collection in collaboration with Kathryn Nelson, the Plastic Free Mermaid.
The Bundle featured a carry bag with a terry towel cloth side so our community can clean and dry their utensils after each healthy meal while out adventuring in nature.
The Mermaid Collection donated $3,000 to the Lonely Whale Foundation's ocean conservation and awareness mission.
In 2021, we have asserted a stronger position of impact through our 1% for the Planet donations.
As a sustainable business Coconut Bowls are focussing on reforestation projects with Half Cut and ocean conservation initiatives with Sea Shepherd.
As a sustainable business we advocate for the idea that small actions made by individuals have the power to create large scale community growth. We’ve based our sustainable business on this model and our customers can attest that their purchase of a Coconut Bowl is one to be proud of.
On April 22nd for World Earth Day, we hosted a Beach Clean Up and Build your own Smoothie Bowl Morning at Simon Hill's Plant ProofRetreat with Journey Retreats.
We love getting out in the community, connecting with nature and protecting our precious coastlines!
We partnered with an array of amazing brands for giveaways like the 5 Day Trip to Bali thanks to the Bali Bible, Vitamix Blender Giveaways, Hello Fresh, Beachly Subscription Boxes, Victoria's Secret World Coconut Day Campaign and Trend RaiderGermany Subscription Boxes.
This year we are proud to have hit over 200,000 Coconut Bowls customers. Whether you have been with us every step of the way, or have just recently received your first Coconut Bowl, we truly appreciate having you in our Coco Community.
We are beyond excited to take you on another coco journey filled with new products, fun collaborations and exciting giveaways and partnerships!
And.... THAT'S A WRAP!
Wishing you all a happy and safe Holiday Season!
With Kindness & Gratitude,
The Team at Coconut Bowls
