    Hi there, great idea.

    My name is Aaron from the UK

    I am currently in the process of making simple, organic and biodegradable packaging using purely natural material, material being leaves. Nothing special, however we have a concoction of natural earthy pulp (no chemicals whatsoever) and biodegradable wax whereby once the process from start to finish has been completed this will form sturdy, waterproof and long lasting packaging material which will be available in sheets or other types of packaging features determined by what works best for suppliers and being flexible and sturdy this could replace the plastic packaging we see in the supermarkets today.

    This material is proven to allow the choice of being refrigerated or frozen, the biodegradable wax helps to protect the produce enough to keep fresh and to keep out any moisture for a substantial amount of time, strong enough to keep food products inside the packaging without any taring or splitting.

    From Fish, Meats, frozen produce to fresh and freshly made products this packaging would work for all.

    Most of all the complete packaging is totally environmentally friendly and green to the community, and as stated the product is biodegradable and will rot down and dispose of itself without any human interference from anywhere between 3-8 weeks just the same as fallen leaves to in your back garden.

    Along with this product we offer local communities and businesses a clean up service totally free of charge. In this service we remove fallen leaves that may be blocking drainage systems, causing a nuicance in the workplace I.e tredding in wet leaves creating a mess and most of all clearing walkways which could be dangerous and cause significant harm for small children and the elderly I.e such as shopping parades, schools and Care homes. Clearing will prevent slips trips and falls and will make the area look clean and tidy. We offer this as a completely free service because we believe in giving something back to the community in return for the waste we collect from yourselfs to keep our packaging being processed.

    I am looking for feedback or any questions that people may have on this product I am more then willing to answer and also any concerns with the product you may come across.

      Hello Aaron,

      I am the founder of a charity that is working in Nepal where we are looking at using banana fibre and other natural products to make disposable plates and cutlery. I would love to have an exchange with you about packaging material. Would that be possible?

      Best wishes

      Philip

      Dear Aaron,

      We work with natural fibres in Assam, India. We’re working on some research projects to process banana fibres naturally and efficiently. Most importantly, we are constantly looking for sustainable packaging solutions that can be produced locally with minimum capital expenditure, so that the local community can own them.
      May we connect?

        Hello Aron
        I would love to be part of this project. I live in Ibadan Nigeria, and for many years plastic packaging has been the most preferred for food, and this disposables are causing a lot of environmental damages on our water ways and also blocking the drainage system. Almost all foods are now packaged with plastic and it’s not eco-friendly. Once it rains, everywhere get flooded.

        I want to solve this problem, Mr Aron I want to be part of your team, representing your ideas in my Nation.

        I would love to work with you.

        Thanks….

      Hi Aaron
      I would love to hear about this product. Are you able to sell this in the UK?
      I live in Los Angeles CA and this would be an item that would go especially in high end grocery stores. Ex Whole Foods, Mother’s Market and Sprouts. Here in CA people will pay for all natural products. If you have literature please share. If they pay 8.00 for gallon of organic milk.
      I’m sure this product is needed Edu to climate change.

    If there is someone interested in starting that business in Southamerica, please contact me. I would like to analise some points of this with someone.

  11. […] have banned plastic packaging and have replaced them with other packaging material such as banana leaves. Any throw away item you find in your house that is not biodegradable, replace it with something […]

    Dear Sir, I am aware of the use of banana leaves in the packaging industry as a sustainable and eco friendly alternative to the plastic. I have been in the business of banana plantation for last three years. I am interested in selling the banana leaves and stems cut separately to packaging industry in the nearby area of Nagpur, Maharashtra. Please guide.
