Are Leaves The New Plastic – viral photos show the possibilities

What are we going to do without plastic? How will we survive without single use items? Well, for some where that is already a reality, the answer is leaves. Which is something that was used before single use plastic and is making a return.

These cool, viral photos show places where plastic wrapping has been replaced with banana and other large leaves. Eco friendly and also aesthetically pleasing. A very cool solution to the problem. The leaves can even be folded and fashioned into cups and bowls. Neat!

This isn’t a solution for everywhere. If you don’t live in a tropical environment, chances are you don’t have trees that produce leaves large enough for this. Imagine trying to package fruit in a maple leaf or twenty spruce leaves, stitched together. Still, for the areas that do have these options, this is a very practical solution.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
