OUR STORY

Have you ever noticed how nature makes you feel good?

 We invite you to take 3 seconds

 Just close your eyes...

 …Breathe in…

…Breathe out…

Imagine yourself on a beautiful tropical beach, feeling the sun, having nothing to worry about, feeling that you are living in paradise. You can imagine palm trees, the warm breeze, the sound of the ocean. Feeling full of energy and the good vibes all around.

We want you to feel this happiness and capture it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

However, we know that nature is under threat...

Climate change, habitat loss, plastic pollution…More than 8 tonnes of plastic is ending up in our oceans each year!

 And our mission is to save it.

We found a sustainable way to help the environment by recycling a beautiful natural product that is often only partially used and then thrown away… 

…COCONUTS!  

An estimated 50 billion coconuts are harvested annually across the tropics. Almost all the coconuts shells become waste after being used for their meat, coconut oil, and water. The waste of these natural products does not end there, as they are then burnt and therefore increase environmental contamination,  the burning process causes carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane emissions in the atmosphere.

Coconut shells are very resistant, they’re waterproof and last many years.  While shells are often discarded , they can be converted into something beautiful, coconut bowls, coconut cups, and coconut candles!

That’s why we created GiveMeCocos. We want to add value to a wasted resource, recycling these discarded coconut shells, to make and expand a variety of useful, environmentally friendly products. All our products are handcrafted and polished with natural coconut oil and contain no artificial substances! 

We complete the holistic benefits of coconut bowls with inspirational quotes to motivate your day. 

We believe in the power of words, an inspirational quote a day can keep your negatives away. They remind us what is really important and make it easier to focus on positive things and have the right attitude. 

Each meal can be so much more than just food, we see it as an energising, fulfilling experience.  Add a bit of paradise to your meals and make you feel as if on holidays, every day.  

 

OUR PROJECT 

GiveMeCocos is an eco-friendly, wellness encouraging, sustainable Aussie brand, our journey started in 2019.

Our mission is to inspire you with handcrafted natural coconut bowls and other sustainable products, they all have a unique design with inspirational quotes on the outside, created by GiveMeCocos, to motivate your day.

Every purchase has an economic, environmental and social impact.

We source our coconuts from developing countries, this allows us to support communities in need, practice fair trade principles and employ local people, opening up new opportunities that could raise the living standards of millions of families living in the tropics. All our products are handmade by Vietnamese artisans.

By purchasing our products you are not only creating more beauty in your meals, you are also helping our planet, offering a completely eco-friendly alternative to plastic which is polluting our earth so terribly. 

We believe in using the resources that nature gives us to protect our planet. Imagine a world where nothing goes to waste, wouldn’t it be amazing? That’s our goal, to become a zero waste world. We believe that sustainability is the future.

 

SOCIAL IMPACT

We want to empower and support one of the most vulnerable populations in our community, people with disabilities. That's why we partner with a local social enterprise called Packforce for the preparation and shipping of our orders. Packforce is a member of the Cerebral Palsy Alliance and employs Australian workers with a physical or neurological disability.  Not surprisingly, the team is very much able!

We believe that everyone should have the right to work, and we want to ensure that no one gets left behind, as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states:

Article 23.1: Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.

We believe that we all have to focus on our strengths, not our weaknesses. We all need to feel worth it, capable and recognise the importance for persons with disabilities of their individual autonomy and independence, including the freedom to make their own choices.

 

OUR BOWLS PROMOTE CONSCIOUS EATING

We connect coconut bowls with a healthy lifestyle and mindful eating. We can not imagine having junk food inside them. For us coconut bowls are all about whole-food, fruit and veggies, and colourful meals loaded with nutrients. 

Food always tastes better in a coconut bowl!

They motivate us to follow a healthy lifestyle of fitness and yoga, feeling great about yourself and full of energy. When we see a coconut bowl we feel inspired to cook something that makes us feel good, from inside to out, and we would like to inspire others to feel the same.

We want to encourage people to make healthier lifestyle choices by adding vibrant colours and creativity to everyday recipes. This is why we share with you a lot of yummy plant based recipes, check them out!

 

OUR COMMUNITY 

We have built a global community. But our community is unique! It’s healthy, conscious, passionate and active.

We want to encourage people to get healthy and make more conscious choices, to make us responsible and to take action so we can live in a better world and in a natural way.

We invite you to be part of it! Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Instagram & Facebook to be more inspired, happier and healthier.  Join our Coco-Community and share with us all your recipes and wellness inspiration.
