KUORI is a concept of a biodegradable alternative material under consideration by the recycling economy. It consists of banana peel, which gets thrown away as a by-product of our daily consumption. Bananas are among the most popular fruits in Switzerland. In contrast to also-popular domestic apples, the entire demand for bananas must be imported. This takes 20-30 days and costs a lot of energy, so why don't we use the whole banana?
The concept is to transform the banana peel from a waste product into a sustainable, natural material and therefore extend the circular loop of the banana fruit.
