We’ve boasted the merits of the coconut [2]before, but we forgot to mention that this delicious fruit is also provides for an incredible renewable material [3]! Designed by Bambu [4], these colorful bowls come in a set of four and have been carved out of leftover coconut shells and coated in a food safe lacquer. But don’t think of them as your everyday bland bowl. Since each piece is formed from its very own coconut, each bowl has a shape as unique as the coconut from which it came. Both fun and eco-friendly, this best bet arrives in four equally delectable colors: mango, cayenne, spearmint blue, and basil green!
