What does your food come in? A bag, a box. How about a leaf?
It seems like eveyone is talking about what they can do to be a little better to the earth. Ex: reusing plastic bags. I like to think that we can learn a little something from Thai snacks. Many of the old style snacks come wrapped in banana leaves, palm leaves, and other unfamiliar broad leaves. Thailand is certainly not the only place I've seen this. All through Latin America people eat a variation of tamales, wrapped in banana leaves and corn husks, both by products of food crops. Something to think about.
