When it comes to food sustainability coconuts are in the same league as hemp, they are an incredibly versatile crop that produces in abundance, while nourishing the soil. Meet Ryan Burden of Coconut Information. We visited Ryan at The Coconut Farm in Haiku, Hawaii to learn more about this incredible plant.
Food, drink, oil, skin and hair care, fuel, rope, lumber, wine, mulch, candles, darts, and bowls are just a few of the uses for coconuts. When partnered with the over 25,000 uses for hemp– these two power plants could eliminate the need for plastic altogether. Just like hemp, products made from coconut are 100 % natural and plant-based so what isn’t used easily biodegrades and nourishes the soil with zero waste, just compost. No dangerous chemicals or pesticides are needed to grow coconuts, and they are their own packaging which means less toxic plastics floating in the ocean.
“Sowing seeds is to believe in the future. Cultivating, adding to this world, giving back to the land which gives so much to us, is our duty. By planting, harvesting and eating we gain a deeper more genuine understanding of our existence on Earth."
Coconut trees fruit year-round and can live 100+ years. A single tree can produce thousands of coconuts in its lifetime– making it one of the world’s most productive plants, much like hemp. Learn about the lifecycle of the coconut here:
