Of course! 👍 Coconut bowls, like many of us, don’t like being exposed to extreme temperature changes. It’s a good idea to gently warm your bowl with some water before using it to serve hot food. We also recommend letting piping hot food cool a little before serving.

Because this product is 100% natural we advise you avoid exposing your coconut bowl to extreme temperature changes. Therefore they are not suitable for the dishwasher, microwave, oven or fridge.

Your coconut bowl is a natural product so it’s important to take good care of it. Check out our Care Tips to find out more!

We do not recommend you put your cutlery in the dishwasher. Simply wash with some soap and warm water, wipe dry and put back in the pouch ready for their next use.

little broccoli sponges are made from 100% natural materials. Consisting of only loofah and wood pulp these sponges are stitched together using cotton thread. No hidden glue, polyester or microplastics! 

This will depends on many factors including how often you use it and what you are using it for. We replace our daily washing up sponge every 4 weeks or so.

Yes, the sponges are machine washable on a cool setting. We however recommend that you simply rinse them well after use and put aside for the next use.

You can simply put the sponge straight into your compsot bin! If you do not have a compost bin then you can usually put them in your food or garden waste bin. Check with your local council for specfic details if you are unsure.
