Eco-Uling

Transforming coconut waste into sustainable charcoal

Project Lily Inc.’s Eco-Uling initiative is committed to transforming coconut waste into eco-friendly and cost-efficient charcoal for a sustainable future. Originally conceived as a livelihood project, Eco-Uling has evolved into a thriving social enterprise dedicated to environmental preservation and community empowerment. 

 

The flagship product, Eco-Uling charcoal briquettes, showcases the commitment to sustainability and quality. Made from coconut shells, Eco-Uling offers several advantages over traditional charcoal options. It provides a longer burning time of up to six hours in enclosed grill units, emits minimal to no smoke, produces less ash, and is remarkably easy to ignite. 

Saving trees, changing lives

For every ton of Eco-Uling produced, 88 trees are saved, equivalent to one tree for every dozen packs sold. This initiative not only provides alternative energy to consumers but also creates sustainable livelihoods for coconut farmers, including those involved in Eco-Uling production.

 

Beyond its environmental impact, Eco-Uling actively contributes to social empowerment and economic upliftment. Through a partnership with the Tahanang Walang Hagdanan Foundation, Eco-Uling supports livelihood programmes, education, and training for over 250 Persons with Disabilities (PWDs). Eco-Uling products not only promote a greener future but also empower marginalised communities.

 

Project Lily Inc. envisions a future where sustainable practices and social responsibility intersect to drive positive change, one charcoal briquette at a time. Each purchase of Eco-Uling supports this vision, aiming to combat poverty, preserve the environment, and empower individuals.
