Jungle Culture ethically sourced zero waste products now available on our store

We are very excited for our next first collaboration with Jungle Culture. We love their 100% commitment to support and promote small and rural manufacturers in developing communities, while creating jobs and opportunities and helping the fight against waste.

At NuSEAS we value eco-sustainability that creates change and dismantles environmental injustices, that also means putting our values ahead of profit each and every time. Jungle Culture are doing exactly that.

Their bamboo products began out of curiosity about how to preserve the natural world, while reducing plastic pollution and benefit local communities in harmony with that natural environment and never against it. 

Jungle Culture have created an ethical supply chain, powered by small farms, craft workshops and transparent factories. Each product is 100% natural, organic and unique.

Each product is sourced from family-run farms in Northern and Southern Vietnam. By investing in their custom-made, eco friendly straws, bamboo cutlery and coconut bowls you are directly supporting rural families and farms in Vietnam.

Beautiful products with a beautiful story

Their coconut bowls are handpicked by a local agent in Ben Tre who travels between various coconut farms to choose only the thickest and most durable shells, ensuring that only a very small percentage of bowls are broken in transit. This helps keep the total emissions cost of transporting the bowls to an absolute minimum.

Ben Tre is criss-crossed with small rivers, canals and streams, stemming from the Mekong river. This network of waterways provides an extensive organic irrigation system, allowing local farmers to grow crops with very little external water use.

On the other hand, this also means that the area is susceptible to flooding, with local climate change experts from the university of Can Tho predicting that if sea levels continue to rise, more than 50% of Ben Tre could end up underwater… A grave illustration of how important environmental issues are to this coastal community.
