Supermarkets in Asia are now using banana leaves for packaging

Supermarkets in Vietnam have adopted an initiative from Thailand that makes use of banana leaves instead of plastic as a packaging alternative after a local firm featured the idea on Facebook. The novel idea caught attention of Vietnamese supermarkets. According to the supermarket’s representatives they are still in the testing phase but will be replacing plastic packaging with leaves soon. 

With Vietnam ranking number four in the world for the most amount of plastic waste dumped into the ocean, such efforts are of the utmost importance.
