Innovative for the West, Tradition for the East


Banana Leaves as packaging may sound weird for many. For Thai Supermarket, Rimping Supermarket located in Chiangmai, Thailand, this is how they choose to make a difference in the over usage of plastic in the world.

The Supermarket wraps banana leaves around the fruit or vegetable and ties it using a ribbon. They then paste a sticker on the leaf showing the code and the price of the fruit or vegetable.

In addition, they have a sticker which reads ‘pesticide safe’ in order to assure the customers that the fruit or vegetables are grown in the most safest way possible.

One of the sights you invariably see at supermarkets might be individual fruits or vegetables packaged in plastic, which some might consider an excessive use of said plastic.
