Do you know the connection between bananas and diapers in Africa?

10-07-2019

In many parts of Africa, especially in West Africa, Central and East Africa, bananas are widely consumed and have important cultural and medicinal values. Banana is one of the richest, most valuable and adaptable tropical fruits in Africa.

Many people think that banana stems are not beneficial; they cannot be eaten or used as firewood. Usually, when harvesting bananas, the stems are cut and discarded on the ground to rot.

Women in rural Africa convert banana stem fiber into a very valuable absorbent material that can be used to make baby diapers, as well as women's sanitary napkins.

This material comes from the raw materials of banana trees and can help Africans – especially those in poor and low-income families – to buy cheaper and more sustainable diapers for their children and to provide more for rags and other susceptible materials. Have a dignified choice. Rural women are used during menstruation.
