We give coconut shells a new life
Our products are 100% plant-based. In fact, our bowls are made from real coconuts.
With our beautiful plant-based bowls, we’d like to remind you of the amazing things our planet has to offer and inspire you to live a plant-based and sustainable life.
Coconuts grow in more than 90 countries around the world. Coconut is a popular product and is used in various ways. Every year, millions of coconuts are processed into other products such as coconut oil or coconut milk. Many coconut shells, however, are discarded and burned as a waste product. This makes a significant contribution to the emission of CO2 and methane and the health of humans and animals. Together with our partner in Vietnam, we collect these coconut shells and give them a new life as a sustainable bowl that you can enjoy every day.
Made at the source
Our coconut bowls are harvested directly at the source in Ben Tre, also known as the Coconut Capital of Vietnam. Ben Tre is located in the Cuu Long River Delta and has very favorable soil conditions for the growth of palm trees. Our bowls are carved and designed by local artisans. For the local population, palm trees have a special place in their cultural and economic life, because the export of coconut products brings great economic efficiency and local jobs.
Plant Ahead is an eco-friendly start-up. We offer the best quality for the best price, for everyone. Our local partner and artisans get paid up to two times as much compared to similar jobs for the fantastic work they do. We are in the process to try and receive the Fairtrade Certificate. This is how we contribute to the people and the development of Vietnam.
