what is the insulation material that the online order is packed in? is it recyclable?
This liner is made with 100% pre-consumer recycled cotton. The cotton is sourced from U.S. textile/clothing mills, and it’s typically taken from the trimmings or pieces that don’t make it into clothing. Since it would’ve ended up in a landfill, we call it pre-consumer recycled material. It is made from 85% rapidly renewable plant fiber.
Where does it go?
Recycle reclaimed cotton (where #60 cotton is accepted). If your local recycling center is not able to process #60 cotton, dispose in your regular waste—it will biodegrade.

Why is the coconut water pink?
This is a totally natural process that occurs because of the polyphenols and antioxidants naturally present in “Nam Hom” coconut water. Because Copra’s Coconut Water is 100% pure, not from concentrate, and as close to cracking the coconut as you can get, the composition of antioxidants will differ by coconut. So the shade of pink, sweetness and aroma may differ by bottle. Taste the differences!
