SOOP – liquid
Wow! In the Netherlands, we produce 120 million kilograms of coffee grounds each year, and millions of kilograms of orange peel – both by-products of our consumption of coffee and orange juice. What’s left over just gets thrown away. ‘SOOP’ is made from leftover orange peel and coffee grounds, but more importantly it puts the natural fragrance, scrubbing qualities, cleansing power, and colour of coffee and citrus to work on your skin.
Bast Coco BBQ Set
Wow! BAST BBQ is a young Dutch company with its heart in the right place. BAST BBQ coco-coal briquettes are high-quality briquettes made from coconut bark – a waste product from the Indonesian coconut industry. BAST burns better, longer and with less smoke than regular charcoal.
In Europe we’re used to seeing coconuts with a brown, hairy shell. But these are nothing like fresh coconuts that you can drink the liquid from with a straw. In Sri Lanka, fresh coconuts are green in colour and large in size. After drinking the sweet liquid from inside the coconut, the green shell is left over. And Interall Group uses these to design its very own “Coco Birdhouses”.
This reusable, recycled water bottle is made from bamboo (lid) and sugar cane (bottle). This means your drink has no artificial plastic taste or smell. Both plants absorb CO2 from the air while growing. So, by using this natural bottle, you’re helping to reduce greenhouyse gasses and put an end to single-use plastic bottles.
