THE JOURNEY OF THE COCONUT SCOURER

The Coimbatore district in India is the heartland of coconut cultivation and the birthplace of the coconuts used in the creation of the Eco Rock scourer.

Kerala and Pollachi have multiple coconut farms and both are very close to the manufactures location. They do not source the full coconuts but the curled husks. 

The life cycle is as below,

Coconut husks from the farms will be shredded at factories to get the coconut coir fibre. These fibres are then curled and drawn into 2 ply ropes and kept under tension for 3 months. In Fact the raw material is these ropes.

They then un-curl the ropes, spread them on a bed and spray stabilised natural rubber latex over them. They are then heated, compressed, then cut in shape, reinforced with stitches and packed into 100% recyclable Eco Rock packaging.

The entire process happens in a radius of 100 kms maximum. The carbon footprint of this product is in fact negative (All the carbon that shall be generated during the process and transportation to the end customer is more than compensated by the carbon absorbed by the trees during their life).

The completed packs of scourers are then shipped from India to Hythe in the UK, where Eco Rock shouts and promotes these amazing little scourers and encourages people to make the change to biodegradable scourers. 

There you have it, a beautiful, efficient, zero waste product that can easily replace a plastic filled daily essential.
