Tienlyn Jacobson of ThoughtfulMisfit.com hung out with a few influencer friends and gave a little coconut oil true or false pop quiz.
(Los Angeles, California, November 3rd 2017) – Will Lauder, Founder & President of Kapuluan Coconut, is pleased to announce that Kapuluan’s Documentary Short film Kinabuhi has won 3 prestigious Film Festivals over the summer and fall seasons.
It’s no secret that coconut has recently seen a boom in worldwide demand. The fruit, important to many tropical cultures for generations, has now experienced a massive surge in interest from Westerners – everyone loves them some coconut products.
With all the hype in the coconut market, there is an element to the madness that is often forgotten. Actually, forgotten is the wrong term – no one has a clue about it. There are a growing number of brands using coconut oil in their products, and even they don’t know what is going on.
There are definite problems in the coconut industry. Despite coconut the Philippines most abundant and valuable resource, over 60% of coconut farmers live in a cycle of extreme poverty with no way out.
Once I checked into my hotel, I decided to walk around and find something to eat. I ended up passing by a 7-11 and was overwhelmed by the amount of extremely young (like 2 years old to 7 or 8 years old) homeless children nearby.
As we settle into a new calendar year, I’m reminded of the awful start Kapuluan experienced as we were heading into 2016, our first year in business.
On November 19, 2016 we partnered with @plasticfree_bohol to organize a Bohol beach clean up in Panglao Beach, Philippines. We’re happy to report that it was a great success!
