These are often used as shade; and act as a foil to wrap food in or plates to serve it on. Its many uses make the banana one of the most eco-friendly fruits out there. Our bananas are always fairtrade and certified organic. Naturally.

Famed for their rich potassium content, bananas can help prevent high blood pressure, ulcers and myriad other health complications. Sometimes known as nature’s antidepressants, bananas contain tryptophan; which our bodies convert to seratonin.
