Coconut is a natural material, and the oil is widely used as an ingredient in snacks, breads and syrups. It is widely used as a plant-derived surfactant and is eco-friendly as it does not contain harmful substances such as colorants, parabens, and phosphates. Coconut shells can be produced with coconut palm mesh material, which is used for slippers and mattresses. Eco-friendly soap and hand wash package design was carried out using this coconut palm mesh-based material. It is designed to be reusable with glass, and both detergent and soap are made from coconut ingredients. The shape of the package was inspired by the shape of a water droplet and combined with the shape of a coconut, and laser cutting was used to limit the use of the label. This product is an upcycling package made of coconut and can be manufactured without any post-processing such as coating, making it easy to recycle and prevent water and soil contamination.
