    Business Insider, you should ask for their contact details or an online store of the products you feature. This way, it helps the businesses flourish amidst this pandemic.

    I appreciate the attempt of converting the waste into something useful but its not a total waste wen you really know its importance its just too healthy .

    In Kerala India we eat our food in banana leaves and the steam of that is used as food ,we eat it πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈim sry I lost it at the beginning itself when you said banana produce more waste

  10. Marwa S on February 28, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    I love bananas too but recently changed to eating green ones vs riped ones as they have more fibre and way less sugar than riped ones! But pretty cool how you can use remainder of stem to create more items!

    Why do the machines cost so much? Maybe someone on the area can produce a cheaper machine. Sounds simple.
