If you’ve seen the last episode of Lost (one of the few TV series I actually watch, raison de plus – it’s Lost’s last season…), you might have noticed Miles carrying some food to Linus on a banana leaf. I don’t know if that was inspired by real life facts or the other way around (my logic leads me to the last hypothesis, since this Lost episode wasn’t aired until now and the banana leaf incident didn’t struck me before, even if they were shown eating or around camp pretty often).
To keep it short: there’s a new packaging at the eco-horizon: the banana leaves! The idea was showcased at a design competition and its author, Tal Marco, really brings something old however strikingly new to the concept of packaging. We are talking about food packaging, not handbags or jewelry. Though… What do you think? Would you wrap your sandwich in a banana leaf? (via)
