German supermarket sells peeled slip-free bananas

by | 23rd, September 2012

THE German-owned Billa supermarket chain has been selling ready-peeled bananas in its Austrian stores. The fruits come on a plastic tray rapped in clingfilm.

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.

Some customers say the peeled bananas are the ultimate symbol of waste and the throw-away society.

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

China

Manchester United kits

Bins
