coco husk

Back then, coco husk was considered as a waste so that people just threw it away. In fact, coco husk brings so many benefits. For example, you can turn it into a doormat. Coco doormat is one of the most popular products made of coco husk. Besides, there are still many other perks of coco husk. Here they are.

Coco Charcoals and Coco Briquettes

Long time ago, people always used coconut shells and coir as fuel before there were oil stoves and gas stoves. Even though there are more modern cooking equipment like electric stoves and cooktops, many people still use coconut shells as an ingredient to produce coconut charcoal and coconut briquettes.

According to many studies, charcoal and briquettes made of coco shells are more environmentally friendly because the emissions produced are less than other fuels, making it safer for the environment.

Planting Media

Different from peat moss that is highly acidic, coconut husk has a neutral pH level. So that if you use it as a planting medium, your plants can grow really well, especially flowers and vegetables. It is because flowers and vegetables can thrive in neutral to alkaline growing media conditions. Coconut husk can also improve soil drainage in plants while helping to retain moisture in the soil that dries quickly.

It is because coconut husk can create air pockets in the soil that allow excess moisture to flow directly from the plant roots. Moreover, coconut husk contains a bit of nutrients that improve soil’s overall quality over time.

Organic Fertilizer

Coco husk with a thickness of about 5cm to 6cm has an outer and inner layer that contains chemical content, such as cellulose, lignin, gas, pyroligneous acid, tar, charcoal, tannin, and potassium. Potassium contained in coconut husks can be a source of organic potassium as an alternative to KCL fertilizer.

Organic fertilizer made using coconut husk can store as much as 60% more water compared to other fertilizers. So, for agricultural or plantation areas with low rainfall levels or often experience drought, the plants can still receive enough water stored in coconut husks.


The next benefit of coconut husk is it can be turned into high-value crafts. Coconut husk can be made into some products, including coco coir, coco fiber boards, coco pots, coco fibers, and coco peats. After being processed into these products, coconut husk can be reprocessed into various handicrafts, such as doormats, dolls, miniature, and mattresses.

Coco Net

Coco net is processed from coconut fiber that looks like nets. This product is usually used to prevent landslides in areas that have lots of steps or cliffs. As a result, coco nets can minimize the occurrence of landslides. As you know, landslides are a dangerous disaster that can take many victims.

Body Health

Coconut husk extracts contain alternative antibiotics that can be useful for treating methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus infections. Staphylococcus aureus can cause pneumonia, bacteremia, endocarditis or infection of the heart valves, and osteomyelitis or infections that occur in the bones.

Those are some various benefits of coco husk.
