BANANEX / Banana Glasses

BANANEX -BANANA GLASSES
Up to one billion tonnes of food are wasted globally each year. The banana, apart from being the world s most popular fruit, represents environmental, social, political and economic interests. This project adopts a cradle-to-cradle philosophy in adopting banana skins as a potentially valuable material resource that extends the life cycle of the banana. A homemade recipe was developed to process the skins and demonstrate their usability and versatility. The outcome is a pair of 100% bio-degradable designer glasses. The project attempts to radically alter perception and promote new, favourable possibility.
