How to Look After Your Repurposed Coconut Bowls

Embracing Eco-Warrior Chic with Your Coconut Bowls

Welcome to the world of repurposed coconut bowls, where tropical vibes and eco-friendliness collide in your kitchen. Picture yourself sipping a morning smoothie from a repurposed coconut bowl while the waves crash and the palm trees sway. While we can't transport you to an exotic beach this winter, we can certainly offer you an eco-friendly, island-inspired dining experience!

Our repurposed coconut bowls are a guilt-free alternative to plastic crockery. Handcrafted from reclaimed coconut shells, they bring a touch of the tropics to your meals and offer practicality for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Unveiling the Coconut Bowl

Discovering the Essence of Coconut Bowls

If you're new to Clean U Skincare, allow us to introduce our best-selling coconut bowls. Crafted from aged coconut shells and infused with coconut oil, these bowls are the embodiment of eco-conscious creativity. Hand in hand with artisans in Vietnam, we repurpose discarded coconuts, breathing new life into them and assisting communities in need. Rest assured, every bowl we offer is certified as food-grade.

The Birthplace of Our Coconut Bowls

Tracing the Origins of Our Coconut Shells

Our coconut shells have their roots in Ben Tre , nestled in Southern Vietnam, often dubbed "The Kingdom of Coconuts." In this lush expanse of the Mekong Delta, coconut trees thrive in the ideal conditions, producing coconuts with shells perfectly suited for our bowls.

However, in mainstream consumption, most coconuts are harvested primarily for their milk, oil, and flesh, leaving their shells to languish as waste. We intercept these unwanted shells, preventing them from meeting a fiery end and transforming them into sustainable homeware pieces.

The Multifaceted Appeal of Coconut Bowls

Why We Love and Promote Coconut Bowls

Coconut bowls are more than just stunning additions to your kitchen; they offer numerous practical, environmental, and social advantages.

Practical Advantages of Coconut Bowls

The natural depth and shape of coconut shells make them ideal for serving soups, smoothies, curries, and an array of delectable dishes. No more spillage as you enjoy your morning cereal!

Though not dishwasher-safe, their smooth surfaces make cleaning a breeze.

Environmental Benefits of Coconut Bowls

In Vietnam, discarded coconut shells are often burned, releasing carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere. At Clean U Skincare, we breathe new life into these shells, preventing carbon emissions and embracing sustainability in our products.

Social Benefits of Coconut Bowls

We're not just eco-conscious; we're socially responsible. Our coconut shells come from farmers in rural Vietnam, providing them with additional income and safe working conditions.

Nurturing Your Coconut Bowls

Mastering the Art of Coconut Bowl Care

Because coconut bowls are entirely natural, they require specific care to ensure their longevity. Fear not, it's simpler than it sounds!

While bamboo, acacia, and other materials require chemical treatments, coconut shells remain au naturel and durable.

Keeping Your Bowls Gleaming

The Art of Coconut Bowl Cleaning and Polishing

Cleaning coconut bowls is a breeze with just three steps: wash with soapy water, gently scrub to remove dirt, and allow air to dry.

Stains are possible with natural products, so minimise these by avoiding foods with artificial dyes and colours. And if your bowl loses its lustre, a quick polish with flaxseed oil, linseed oil, or coconut oil will restore its shine.

Kitchen Do's and Don'ts

Understanding Coconut Bowl Compatibility

Coconut bowls are not suitable for dishwashers, microwaves, or ovens due to their vulnerability to heat. However, brief stays in the fridge or freezer are acceptable, but prolonged exposure to moisture should be avoided.

And when it comes to hot food, just let it cool down a bit before diving in!
