A Coconut Shell is a natural product made from the outer husk of coconuts. It has been used for centuries as an alternative to plastic, glass and metal packaging because it’s 100% biodegradable. In fact, coconut shells are so strong that they can be reused up to 5 times before being composted.

Coconut Shell: Frequently asked questions

What types of Coconut Shell are there and what determines a good product?

There are two types of Coconut Shells. The first is called ‘Coconut Husk’ and the other one is known as “Coconut Shell Charcoal” (or coconut shell charcoal). Both have different uses, but they both come from the same source – Coconuts.

The quality of the shell is determined by its thickness, color and shape. A thick coconut shell will be more durable than a thin one. Color can vary from white to brown or even black depending on how much it has been exposed to sunlight over time. Coconut shells that are shaped like an oval have better sound qualities than those with irregular shapes such as triangles or squares which tend to produce lower frequencies in comparison.

Who should use a Coconut Shell?

Anyone who wants to enjoy a natural, healthy and delicious alternative to plastic straws. The Coconut Shell is perfect for anyone looking for an eco-friendly way of drinking smoothies or other cold beverages on the go.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Coconut Shell?

The best Coconut Shells should be those that are large and heavy. They must also have a smooth surface with no cracks or holes, as well as being free of any blemishes.

The most important thing to look out for when comparing a Coconut Shell is the thickness of it. If you want something that will last longer, then go with one that has at least 3mm thickness. This way, your product won’t break easily and also be able to withstand more pressure from your feet without breaking or cracking up too soon.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Coconut Shell?


Coconut Shell is a sustainable material that can be used to make high quality products. It has natural antibacterial properties and it’s also hypoallergenic, which means it doesn’t cause allergic reactions in the skin like some other materials do. The shell of the coconut is made up of pure keratin protein, so there are no toxins or chemicals involved in its production process at all.


The main disadvantage of a coconut shell is that it can be difficult to find. They are not sold in stores and must be purchased online or from local farmers markets, if you live near one. Also, they do have some sharp edges on the inside which may make them uncomfortable for your dog’s mouth (although many dogs don’t seem to mind). Finally, because these toys are made out of natural products there will likely be slight variations between each toy so no two will look exactly alike. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing but just something worth noting.
