The Tree of Life
Coconut coir is a layer of fibrous material that is a byproduct of the coconut industry. It’s structure of hollow and narrow cells resemble honeycomb giving coir incredible water retention properties and making it a naturally superior absorbent. The chemical compound, phenol, is a naturally found within coconut coir, making the fiber effective at bonding to hydrocarbons and oil for spill cleanup.
The coconut tree itself is often referred to as the “tree of life”. Coconut trees require no chemical fertilizers for growth and produce up to 200 coconuts a year, making the coconut a renewable resource. Known for its environmental sustainability and versatility of uses, the coconut tree is used to produce a wide range of food products, cosmetics, natural absorbents, soil additives, shelter, decorations, and much, much more.
At Coco Products, we understand the science behind the magic of the coconut coir. We believe that having a sustainable solution to hazardous liquids and spills is the beginning of a healing cycle for our planet. Unlike other absorbents, coconut coir is a byproduct of the already existent process in the coconut industry, not mined from fragile environments. We source our coir from growing regions worldwide, and we are committed to working closely with suppliers to bring our customers the highest quality consistent products available.
All Coco products use the coconut coir to naturally clean up after daily messes. With a natural, sustainable and affordable solution, together, we can help clean up our planet for the next generation.
