'Barnana' is a new snack brand that is not only good for humans, but also good for the planet. Instead of harvesting copious amounts of bananas to make its bite-sized fruit snacks, the company uses 'imperfect' organic bananas that would otherwise go to waste.

The Barnana snacks are the brainchild of company founder and CEO Caue Suplicy, who grew up eating partially dehydrated bananas in Brazil. Suplicy decided to bring the concept to the US in a sustainable way by using bananas that would otherwise be rejected for export due to their size, ripeness or imperfections. These bananas are then combined with nothing but water to create healthy morsels that are rich in fiber and potassium.

With its eco-friendly approach to healthy snacking, the Barnana snacks are likely to become a hit among eco-conscious consumers.
