Sometimes Mother Nature offers up the perfect packaging answer. She did it with the banana skin and the egg shell. And she nailed it again with the coconut shell, which makes a perfect feeder for New Zealand’s birds.

We’ve improved on nature by filling these coconut shells with nutritious peanut flavoured energy food, which we’re sure your garden birds will love. Hang it in a tree near you and watch them flock to feed.

1: Easy to hang. It’s fun for the whole family.

2: Reusable. Once it’s been feasted on you can refill it with more energy food, seed, fruit or even see if it’s used as a nesting spot.

3: Can attract a number of different birds, including blackbirds, silvereye, sparrows, thrush, waxeyes and yellowhammer

How to hang your bird feeder: Look for a safe spot away from where the local predators like cats and stoats can easily get at the feeder. Hang securely from a solid branch or other area. Top up regularly to ensure your garden visitors have enough energy for their daily activities.

FAQs

Where can commercially compostable packaging be processed in New Zealand?

A number of facilities around New Zealand accept commercially compostable packaging, and the list is growing.

  • Christchurch City Council Organics Processing Plant – Operated by Living Earth
  • Capital Compost – Wellington Southern Landfill
  • Revital - Central North Island including Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Taranaki
  • Palmerston North City Council (Awapuni Resource Recovery Park)
  • Hampton Organics – Hampton PARRC - Waikato
  • Envirofert Limited - Auckland & Waikato

An alternative is to find someone locally who makes “hot compost”. In this method of composting, the temperature of the heap rises to 55°C, just like a commercial facility. Our packaging will break down in a well-managed hot compost heap.

Where are Topflite's coconut shells sourced?

Our shells come from coconuts grown and processed in India. After harvest, the coconuts are de-husked for their fibre and the flesh and water are made into food products. The leftover shells are cleaned and sent to us in bulk. We have confirmation that all processes are carried out transparently and ethically by salaried personnel who are covered by an approved social security scheme.
