German supermarket sells peeled slip-free bananas
Billa is big on sustainability and recycling. You wonder if the banana skins are being harvested for housing projects in Fiji or eco-friendly umbrellas in the Sudan.

Others may argue that without the banana skins there is no risk of slipping on one. Customers might include tennis players, who would only benefit from safer sources of potassium.
Other symbol of waste and the throw-away society are:
Children’s TV presenters
EastEnders’ murder victims
Manchester United kits
