‘Dole’ To Replace Plastic With Banana Skins

ภาษาไทยอยู่ด้านล่างนะคะ

It’s not often that a corporate responsibility & sustainability report makes us (or anyone in the entire world) smile. But this one did not only that, but it also filled us with hope, showing us that big corporations around the world are really beginning to take our future seriously. Dole seems to be planting seeds of both banana trees and sustainability. They are dropping down roots for the future.

Dole Fruit & vegetable company have set their sights on eliminating their food waste and fossil-based plastic packaging by 2025, and achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2030. In their latest sustainability report, Dole outlines plans for not only eliminating their food waste, but also turning their banana and pineapple skins into compostable packaging.

Dole is working with partners in R&D labs to develop a way to turn banana and pineapple skin pulp into compostable packaging to replace plastic. Perhaps in 2025 we may begin seeing bananas wrapped in… well, banana skins.

Dole has named their new sustainability framework ‘The Dole Way’. ‘The Dole Way’ also outlines plans to turn ‘ugly’ fruit into snacks, drinks and even skincare products, and to turn any excess food waste into compost or biogas to fuel their processing plants

“The ultimate goal is to see these changes becoming an industry standard.” – Pier Luigi Sigismondi, President of Dole
