Banana leaf wrappers for polythene

  • 14 Nov 2006 03:34:16 GMT

    It is a big question how practical this idea is. In a country where we can not find a solution for garbage, how we can ensure this will solve the problem.

    Plythenes wrappers can never be replaced by natural leaves because natural leaves does not have mass scale production. The solution should be how to recycle the waste polythene instead of banning it.

    Very much like to see this product.

    Can our banana plantations supply ehough raw materials..?

    While doing this, its important to develop, easy to dispose plastic bags,..

    We know, how much developed countries are using plastic. If those rich countries are thinking the environment at global level, they must encourage these kind of projects,..even they dont have any direct gain.

    Ex: promoting banana leave bags to replace plastic bags in Sri Lanka, Toyota Co., can earn a very big reputation, without having any damage to its market.

    If we can make furniture out of Banana leaf, why cannot we make bags?

    Vagabond,

    If Banana leaves to be used as bags, it has to br processed first. That is not so eco friendly again.

    This project is to use it as a food wrapper only. Added advantage is some flavor transferring from banana leaves to the food.

    So what`s going to happen to all the restuarants who serve food on Banana leaves?

    Are they going to switch to the old plate instead?
