In a lakeside farm near my home where they seasonally grew bananas they would pulverize the banana stems and drop it into the lake. Apparently the fish love it and its usually gone by the end of that day. Since they have started doing this ive been noticing a sizeable growth of fish population. Last year this caused return of a few migratory birds I'd last seen like 5 or 6 years ago. A ton of people are turning up for fishing and plans have been made to turn that place into a small wooded park. Its not everyday you see such small changes that have a multitude of effects and somehow everytime i think abt it i get a boost of dopamine lol

I appreciate the innovative idea... But don't call it wasteful.. 1. The fruit is edible.. 2. The leaves can be used to serve hot foods and do have certain digestive properties ... 3. The water produced from the stem is said to be used as an ingredient in antidote for snake bites. 4. The stem is edible. U just need proper recipes. We do it India. 5. You can leave the roots in and the next plant grows. Honestly, I come from a farmer's background and this doesn't feel appropriate to call it wasteful.

Exactly, just another ‘solution’ to a problem that doesn’t exist. Just leaving the waste of the crop to fertilise the ground is more carbon neutral than all the emissions it takes to process them into whatever

We eat the fruit we eat the core of the stem we eat the flower, we use the leaves as plates or natural food wrapping paper, so it is in no means wasteful, now the hard fibers are being used for handlooms which is great.

I love that they're making rugs or wtv but wtf Banana trees aren't wasteful. Every part of a banana tree is useful. We use these "ropes" shown in the video to make traditional flower garlands but we don't make rugs. But we don't cut the whole tree to get the strands, only outer layer is enough... The leaves are used to serve food during festivals and fasts and even the pink bud part of the bunch of bananas is cooked as vegetables. I understand it's a traditional practice but but please don't call them wasteful.

Banana plants are the most wasteful crop? Here in India, we use the whole plant. We eat the fruit ripe and make curry with the raw bananas. We eat the core of the trunk and use the outer shell for religious purposes. In the southern part of the country, we use the leaves as organic plates.

Wasteful? Just come to India. Every bit of this is useful. You eat banana and the rest everything is fed to cattle. The leaves are used as plates in South India and after that the leaves are also fed to cattle. Not a bit is wasted.

@Mandy Heart just think how many items you have seen that say created using natural fibers. That is similar to when you see other spices on food nutritional labels.

Its is really strong. Trust me if you tie a weight of about 5kg to a single 5mm think strand and try to lift it, it will not break for some time and the thread will really dig into your hand. Now i can imagine twisting more threads together to make a thicker rope, it will definitely be efficient (and all this without any synthetic additive).
