There is much talk about the importance of curbing the climate change, to reverse all the causes of our wonderful planet becoming progressively uninhabitable for human beings and losing their biodiversity as we know it.
From many sectors of society, governments, companies, associations, campaigns ... we have heard the importance of recycling, of returning containers, of separating our waste into different buckets. Obviously, this is a very positive act for our environment, because Everything that is recycled becomes something that is no longer produced.
Many experts agree that the most important thing to stop climate change is to stop producing and consuming in a massive way. Containers, single-use plastic utensils, materials that take centuries to decompose and, in short, change a production model that makes us have to buy things every day.
La scheduled obsolescence It is, for example, a serious handicap that we find in our society. Today, everything we buy has a totally limited life, companies know it and use it as a direct link for their mass production, a perfect strategy for the consumer to continue consuming and buying, producing and selling, and the world every time with more unnecessary waste.
There are a number of conditions that govern our economic and productive system that must be demanded to be reversed as soon as possible. We cannot waste more time and the best way is to act.
There are numerous examples of how society is taking more and more advantage of natural resources and leaving behind the use of chemicals to produce a series of elements of consumption in our daily lives.
A great example of this is the coconut. Coconut is a fruit that has been key in the survival of many species and which we have been enjoying for years. But it is more than a fruit or an ice cream flavor. Coconut, in addition to its juicy meat with a totally characteristic flavor, is a producer of drinking water, a water that also has numerous nutrients.
In addition, as we know, there are a number of products coming directly from coconut, we have the coconut oil, both for cooking and varnishing, coconut flour, coconut butter, coconut sugar, sun creams, etc..
Currently in Mexico City, Researchers from the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN) have given the Palma Cocotera new utility. They have developed a new practice, in which they not only take advantage of the coconut, but also its waste, to make food products that are beneficial to health.
“The compounds that can be acquired from coconut wastes are high in fiber and micronutrients, which reduce obesity. Also, coconut fiber contains dietary fiber that helps balance glycemic levels in diabetic people. ” The project coordinator of the National School of Medical Sciences affirmed ”(ECNB) Alicia Ortiz Moreno.
In addition, with the peel of its fruit, we can obtain a great product that, in addition, contributes to reverse all this massive productive process that makes our oceans increasingly dirty. Is coconut shell bowl. The bowl or coconut bowl is perfect ally for all those industries that feed on coconut for industrial exploitation. Since we not only do not generate waste but also use it to build kitchen utensils, cutlery or dishes that can replace harmful materials for the environment.
So the coconut is undoubtedly a perfect ally to combat this process of mass production, toxic waste and unnecessary consumption of single-use materials. When you go to buy a bowl, spoon or fork and you want to know how to do it without the material being chemically treated or generated through polluting processes, think of coconut.
