Our Story

We know we’re not perfect, but we plan to be the best!

The Coconutsy team have worked tirelessly to be an Australian owned, purpose led start-up, with a goal to create products from raw materials that would have otherwise gone to waste.

We’re on a mission to change the way businesses operate, interact with customers and communities, and put a stop to mindless plastic consumption.

We have ambitions to make waves not ripples when it comes to social and environmental impacts, and this is just the beginning.

Help us spread the word, let’s rally the troops. It’s a fight against single use plastic and we’re going to win!

"If you're not using recycled products, you're not really recycling."

HOW IT ALL STARTED
While visiting South East Asia we noticed the locals using recycled and natural products in their everyday life. From wooden spoons to bamboo straws and sea grass bags, not only did they look great but they were up-cycling a resource that would have otherwise gone to waste.

We found ourselves on a secluded coconut farm in the Ben Tre province in Vietnam and arranged a small box of 50 coconut bowls to be sent back home.

After selling out at our local market stall we knew advocating for zero waste wasn't just going to be a fad but a new lifestyle for people who wanted to live clean and eat healthy.

Over the past two years we have sold thousands of coconut bowls and are always expanding our range with more eco-friendly and sustainable alternatives.
