How to Repurpose your Coconut Shells
With an astounding 50-75 trillion pieces of plastic and microplastics currently in the ocean we are continually looking at ways to repurpose and recycle. GiveMeCocos are actively trying to do our bit by reducing plastic pollution.
We want to contribute to a sustainable future by repurposing 100% real coconut shells (a natural product that is often only partially used and then thrown away) in innovative ways. By repurposing coconut shells, we not only reduce waste but also create unique, eco-conscious products.
In this blog, we will explore 3 exciting ways to repurpose coconut shells and inspire you to embrace sustainability while adding a touch of tropical charm to your everyday life.
