The Del Monte Banana Plastic Wrap Doubles Shelf Life

Recently, I have refrained from purchasing bananas because they brown so quickly in my over-heated apartment. Sad, because I love bananas so much. Well, my prayers have been answered with the Del Monte Banana Plastic Wrap, an innovative packaging design for bananas that should keep them fresher, longer.

The Del Monte Banana Plastic Wrap will apparently double the shelf life of bananas by being air- and moisture-tight. Despite claims that the new packaging is not environmentally friendly (since bananas already have their own protective layer), the special banana wraps are currently being trialled in 7-Eleven stores in Dallas. If they’re successful, the Del Monte Banana Plastic Wrap could be coming to a grocery store near you (and by you, I mean me).
