Here at Schools for Sustainability Inc., we dream of a waste free world. In this world, all food scraps are transformed into nutrient rich compost yielding healthy crops, all aluminum cans are converted into new cans, building facades or bicycles, all plastic bottles are transformed into furniture, clothing, or home décor.
I was reminded about how versatile a product a rotten banana is the other week when I was in the Florida Keys and ordered a banana-orange-mango smoothie at a local health food store. The woman took a bag of frozen banana pieces out of the freezer and used them instead of ice. Of course! That just got me thinking of all the ways we can use our old bananas instead of throwing them out.
