Buko Coconut Water

It’s fair to say that coconut water has taken the UK by storm over the last few years, so for a new brand to make an impact would take something special. Buko Organic Coconut Water believe they’ve got what it takes however with their eco-friendly offering…

The term ‘buko’ refers to young green coconuts in the Philippines, known for their naturally sweeter and fresher coconut water, and Buko believe, that by ensuring the coconuts they use are organic and avoiding all additives and preservatives, they have produced a delicious pure drink that will have even the most die-hard coconut water sceptics converted.

Buko Lifestyle 2It’s not just about great taste though. We all know about the purported health benefits of coconut water, but Buko are looking to help more than just the health of those who drink it. The brand have teamed up with Cuipo, an environmental organisation, such that for every carton of drink bought one meter of rainforest is saved. On each carton you’ll find a unique code, which can be entered online to find out exactly where the metre of rainforest you’ve saved is, and the more cartons you drink the more rainforest you’ll help save.

So if you’ve yet to try coconut water, or you’re already a fan but want to try something new, visit www.organicbuko.com for more details on helping your health and that of the planet.

As new research1 shows that coconut water may have benefits beyond just hydration, with results indicating it could have powerful anti-oxidant properties and potential cardiovascular benefits, a new brand of coconut water hopes to give athletes a further reason to swap their sports drinks for coconut water this summer…

For every carton of Buko Organic Coconut Water bought a square meter of rainforest is saved. Buko have partnered with a unique organisation called Cuipo (www.cuipo.org), who work to purchase and preserve areas of primary rainforest that are in danger of deforestation (outside of already protected areas) and acquire all mineral and timber rights for these areas, to help prevent mining or logging in the future.

On each carton of Buko you’ll find a unique code, which can be entered online to find out exactly where the metre of rainforest you’ve saved is, and the more cartons you drink the more rainforest you’ll help save.

In regards to Buko’s USPs…

  • Buko’s sole ingredient is coconut water, some rivals like Vita Coco add sugar.
  • As a result, Buko contains nearly half the amount of sugar as Vita Coco, and the sugars that occur in Buko’s coconut water are natural.
  • Buko is organic, I don’t believe Vita Coco is.
  • Buko has big environmental credentials having teamed up with Cuipo, they are the first brand in the UK to undertake a partnership with the organisation. Cuipo have now saved over 1,000,000m2 of rainforest.
