From 2020 HHK has been trading plastic free produced biodynamic banana. This means a more sustainable method of production as there are now 140 hectares of bananas farms that are free from plastic! Meaning that there is a reduction of 308. 12 KILOS of plastic per hectar per year! And a total reduction of 43 139.2 Kg of plastic per year in all 140 hectares The plastic has been replaced by biodegradable FSC certified paper bags.
Additionally, unlike the plastic, the paper bags once used can later be reused for compost and to control the overgrowth of specific Gramineae. As well as, being recycled to being paper rope used to stabilize the banana trees against harsh winds. And unlike the plastic ropes, used the paper ropes are used and fall into the soil, they can also become compost. Removing the build up of plastic affecting the soil
All of this has been done to create a more sustainable method of production and to protect Mother Earth. We only have the one, and it is our job to maintain it for the future generations.
