A supermarket in Thailand uses innovative containers of banana leaves to avoid the excessive use of plastic! This happened in the city of Chiang Mai, which was suffering from increasingly frequent problems due to the accumulation of plastic waste.
The Rimpimg supermarket stops using single-use plastic and wraps products in banana leaves as an alternative material.
As a result, a small but determined resistance band has been doing its part around the city to help reduce, reuse and recycle man-made things. The result? The Rimping supermarket discovered a rather ingenious alternative to plastic packaging that only pollutes the environment and that ultimately, everyone should imitate.
In addition to offering buyers the option of buying or borrowing a cloth bag in the store, the popular supermarket chain now groups its fresh vegetables into banana leaves tied with a fiber loop! The initiative went viral with a Facebook post that has had more than 3.5 million views and has been shared up to 16,000 times.
According to the comments, the world agrees that this way of preserving the environment and reducing the unnecessary accumulation of plastics is simply brilliant, in addition to that the products become much more attractive in view of the buyers. A way to take care of the Earth and increase sales? We all definitely win with it.
The reality is that it is a fairly simple action but one that will definitely have a huge positive impact on the environment, so we hope that the publication will reach more people who will be able to try this new idea and thus reduce plastics worldwide.
