Coconut Upcycling - Explorar Hotels and Resorts

Coconut Upcycling


Coconuts, those tropical treats that make our curries so creamy and revive us after a Full Moon Party… We want to give them a life beyond their vital role as culinary delights.

At Explorar, we’re on a mission to transform every coconut you savour into stunning decor, functional furniture and unforgettable souvenirs. Let’s dive into the sustainable revolution together and explore the countless possibilities of upcycling coconuts while reducing waste and embracing eco-friendly practices.

From Trash to Tropical Treasure
Our team of skilled craftsmen passionately scour our resorts, rescuing discarded coconut shells from their fate in the waste bin. These shells, often overlooked and thrown away, undergo a meticulous recycling process. First, they clean and sanitise the shells so the result is not only beautiful but also hygienic. It’s not just about repurposing; it’s about preventing coconut shells from becoming environmental pollutants.

Turning Shells into Masterpieces
Those cleaned-up shells are upcycled into exquisite decor that brings a touch of the tropics to the resorts. From intricately carved bowls to grandiose pieces like the bar top at Explorer Koh Samui’s pool bar, each creation highlights the versatility of this humble fruit. Our decor items don’t just visually captivate; they also contribute to reducing carbon footprints, aligning perfectly with our dedication to sustainability.

Beyond Creativity To An Environmental Commitment
Upcycling coconuts is not just about making pretty pieces; it’s a commitment to waste reduction and environmental sustainability. By repurposing coconut shells and husks destined for landfills, we make a noteworthy contribution to the environment. Coconut farming, a thriving industry in tropical regions, often generates waste that contributes to pollution. Explorar aims to address this issue at its core through upcycling, creating a circular economy that benefits both our guests and our beautiful island home.
