Banana leaves would be great for a lot of applications


Teddy commented on Changing disposable packaging

Hi Kate,
Thanks for the welcome and the links.
The project was focused around maintaining a reduced price points while reducing plastic and foil waste.
It wouldn't be a replacement for pet bottles and was slated to be sold more through street vendors and roadside kiosks than stores like Mr.Biggs.
The recycling industry here in Abuja is still relatively new so paper waste isn't collected frequently and part of my proposal was meant to address that, however I feel like my current solution is very much incomplete, so I've decided to pull out form the design challenge.
P.s. Thanks, I'm actually working on a production version of the bag right now, so it just may be available to buy in the near future.
Thanks again for the help Kate.

Thanks Andrew, the mess they make is a real problem, and I think it could be applied to more than one situation.
