Plastic Free July Swaps
It’s that time of the year again - Plastic Free July! An initiative that is very important to us at GiveMeCocos, as we are a completely plastic-free company and share Plastic Free Foundation’s vision of seeing a world free of plastic waste.
Our products are 100% plastic free - made of coconut shells, wood, and bamboo; we rescue these materials to transform them into something valuable and useful for you. We take care of the planet while encouraging healthy meals, and help you to become the best version of yourself.
Enjoy this month 20% OFF storewide with the code: PLASTICFREE at checkout
But our mission extends far beyond our products.
In fact, in encouraging healthy meals and helping you to become the best version of yourself, we also want to empower you to make a difference.
That’s why we’re proud to be partnering with social enterprise, i=Change, to play our part in the purchase-with-purpose movement. Every time you purchase our eco-friendly products, we will donate $1 to the charity of your choice.
Because your choice can change the world for the better.
One of the charities you can choose to donate to is the Seabin Project. Did you know that over 160 million tons of plastic is produced each year to create single-use disposable items and packaging. Plastics end up in waterways and oceans, breaking down into ever smaller pieces called micro-plastics, well known for entering the food chain through the water, air and food that we consume.
Seabin Project cleans the ocean with their Seabin Smart Tech, similar to a rubbish bin X pool skimmer, removing floating plastics as small as 2mm, and filtering 600,000L of water per day from oil and surface pollutants.
Our impact: $1 = removes 1.2kg of plastic and debris from the sea. So far we have helped remove up to 504kg!
Join us in participating in the Plastic Free July challenge to reduce your plastic waste and be part of the solution to plastic pollution by making these plastic free swaps with sustainable and plastic free GiveMeCocos products.

- Swap a Single-Use Plastic Straw for a Bamboo Straw
One of the biggest culprits of plastic is single-use plastic straws - they are lightweight and can be easily blown down drains and into waterways, rivers and oceans - where animals can find them and mistake them as food, and can become stuck in their airways, both being fatal for them.
GiveMeCocos Bamboo Straws are handmade from 100% fast-growing, eco-friendly bamboo and have a unique design with empowering words on the outside to motivate your day. They are the perfect natural alternative to single-use plastic straws, as they are strong, resistant, re-usable, and ideal for cold or hot drinks. Get yours here
