theotherstraw coconut bowls are uniquely handcrafted from reclaimed real coconuts. Billions of coconuts are harvested every year, and most of their shells are either burned as waste or sent to landfill, causing a major threat to the environment.
But, not our organic coconut shells. They have been reclaimed and hand crafted into these trendy, zero waste coco bowls made from coconut wood. A gift from nature. These natural coconut bowls are perfect for smoothie bowls, vegan bowls, buddha bowls, platters and everything in between.
We support initiatives that make our planet a better place
50% of our profits go towards supporting projects that protect the world's oceans and marine life. Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic ends up in our oceans and killing marine life.
We are committed to plastic-free oceans and that is why we are donating part of our profits to initiatives that support this vision.
