Coconut Bowls has been advocating for healthy living and conscious thinking for both people and the planet with our handcrafted eco-friendly home products including a reusable cutlery set. Made from reclaimed ebony, our reusable wooden cutlery is an excellent replacement for plastics for those who want to minimise their carbon footprint.
We began Coconut Bowls after inspiration struck during a 2015 surf trip to Indonesia when we discovered the concept of coconut shell handicrafts at a local market. Seeing the beauty of the shell when the husk had been sanded away, we realised the potential for making them into handcrafted bowls. With a little more research, we discovered that billions of these shells were going to waste each year, burned or buried in local landfills. From our initial offering of reclaimed coconut bowls, we’ve expanded into other eco-friendly home goods, including wooden cutlery. Here is what you can expect when you buy our products:
One of our fundamental goals is to help people think and act more sustainably so of course, we offer customisation options with our products to meet our customer’s personal aesthetics and cutlery needs. These include:
The use of reusable wooden cutlery, particularly spoons, predates history. They were one of the first types of cooking utensils used by our ancient ancestors and with good reason. Of all the products available to them, wood was easy to work with and offered a high level of durability. Wooden cutlery has been used throughout history, and while metal utensils have surpassed wood since the industrial revolution and plastics became the standard disposable option, many people have turned back to wood as we have become more cognisant to the health of the environment.
