The Final Finisher

The Final Finisher - ONEarth

As much as purposeful a coconut is, it has equal limitations to it. For a sustainable lifestyle, all the wrongs should be known too.

I’ll begin by mentioning those coconut edibles and products that I had promised previously. Coconut waste is used in the making of coconut oil and other home products. The edible products are coconut milk (made from shredded fresh coconut meat), coconut puree (used as a base for desserts), and coconut cream.

However, coconut is not entirely sustainable.

  1. It grows in remote regions of the world. Therefore its transportation involves high costs to the environment. Furthermore, to preserve its shelf life during transportation, adequate packaging is required. This adds to the costs.
  2. Its processing is carbon-intensive. For instance, in order to distribute coconut water as part of healthy beverages, it has to be distilled through a process called dewatering.
  3. Decreasing productivity as the tree grows. Therefore, to maintain it farmers grow more of them. This causes monoculture farming and gradually makes the soil unhealthy.

There are a few ways to counter these negative impacts:

  1. Product research as a consumer.
  2. Stick to organic.
  3. Reassess your basket.
  4. Look for certification.

In conclusion, it is important that we as consumers know our lifestyles well. As producers, we need to know the environmental limits which can help us balance the consequences.

Go green! Stay green!
