Eco bowls a winner
There is nothing worse than plastic or styrofoam containers ending up in dustbins while you enjoy yourself on the beach or in a park in the great outdoors. Why not swap those for more earth-friendly designs? Cocobowls by earth made is the solution. These bowls are made by nature from discarded coconut shells and instead of being burnt, they are now the latest stylish serving bowls, perfect for serving just about anything!

A picnic without the mess
Are you tired of spilt drinks every time you sit down for a picnic? The dop table is your very own lightweight picnic table that is compact and portable, measuring 35cm in diameter, making it perfect to fit in your backpack. There is space for two or four glasses and a bottle, as well as snacks. Choose between two designs:
The Simple Picnic (R749.00) is a no hassle, functional picnic table with hinged, nesting legs, also with 4 stemmed glass slots, an off-centre bottle slot that elevates the bottle off the ground and a neat and tidy surface for snacks or your favourite book.
The Compact Classic (R949) incorporates a light yet sturdy jigsaw construction with removable legs, 4 stemmed glass slots, and a bottle holder that shades your wine and snack compartments to help create that Insta-perfect composition.
Fresher drinking water
KURO-Bō makes it safe to drink tap water again! This scientifically-proven plastic-free water filter uses activated charcoal to filter tap water by removing the toxins and making your water taste better. Activated charcoal removes lead, aluminium, copper, iron, chlorine, mercury and manganese, as well as E. coli.
It also removes impurities such as viruses, bacteria, pesticides, and antibiotics. KURO-Bō sticks and Kōins are ideal for use at home or on the go. Simply add them to your water coolers or reusable water bottle. Priced from R165 from Faithful to Nature.
