September 2 is World Coconut Day. Is coconut so special that it gets its own day? Absolutely! The coconut is one of the most multifunctional fruits (not a nut!) in the world. Everything, from the outer shell to the coconut water in the core can be used. Esschert Design has many products made from 100% coconut fibre, from doormats to inlays for hanging plants. Read along with this ode to the coconut.
Coconut offers protection: the fibres from the bark form a barrier and protect against external influences (weather, temperature). As we said in a previous blog: not only trees and bushes benefit from the coconut, birds also like to use the fibres to make a nest.
The coconut fibres are rough enough to make brushes out of. They can be used to clean flower pots, wipe your boots and even brush your vegetables. And with a coconut filled with bird food in your garden, you help the birds in the winter.
Esschert Design also has a number of products containing coconut oil: the Secrets du Potager collection for example now has reusable beeswax wraps (with coconut oil), which is a good alternative to plastic.
And the pumice garden soap, garden soaps in a glass jar and soap on a rope all contain coconut oil, which hydrates and nourishes the hands.
