Low hazard to health. Derived from plants, biodegradable and suitable for greywater and septic tanks.

Coconut (Cocos nucifera) is a tree in the palm (Arecaceae) family, found in tropical regions throughout the world. Trees grow up to 30 meters tall, with large wing-like leaves and smooth trunks. The fruit of the tree is distinctive for its heavy protection (thick, fibrous husk followed by a hard shell) and high water content. The husk, shell, flesh, oil and milk of the coconut can be used in many applications including cooking, cosmetics, soaps and furniture-making. Dried coconut flesh is known as copra.
