We work to solve the wide-scale problem of excess coconut waste by saving shells that would otherwise be discarded or burned as waste, and engage local artisans to transform them into beautiful bowls that people can eat from. As our solution-focussed approach involves educating the public on this sustainable issue, we invited Nikky Yu Montesclaros to share her Masters degree research on innovative materials, focusing on how coconut waste can be a driver in a 'waste movement' for a sustainable future.
The dangers of plastic straws are well-known at this point. So why do people keep using them? Convenience? Lack of a more appealing alternative?

For many of us, enjoying a good takeaway meal is one of life’s small luxuries. It’s something to look forward to during a long day at work, or when you just can’t muster the energy (or time) to get creative in the kitchen. However, the increased convenience too often comes at a large environmental cost.
The world is finally waking up to the plastics epidemic. Defined as ‘items that are designed to be used only once before being thrown away or recycled’, single-use plastics epitomise our society’s throwaway culture and pose a significant threat to the planet as we know it. Since just nine percent of the world’s plastic is recycled, most of it ends up in landfill, the environment, and oceans and waterways. Once there, it does not biodegrade - instead, it takes thousands of years to decompose, posing a danger to our wildlife and polluting nature. Despite increasing awareness of the dangers of single-use plastics, production continues to increase year by year, and unless we all take immediate action it is estimated that the amount of plastic in the ocean will triple within a decade - and eventually outweigh the number of fish. Thankfully, we can all do something about it by committing to quitting single-use products!
