I love this, I really do. I bought an omlet off the street recently (my digestive system adjusted a long time ago, so I like to keep it in good practice), and they wrapped it in leaves, and then folded it up into an old sheet of newspaper. Imagine if all the consumer packaging we have in the states literally grew on trees?? I've seen so much stuff like that here, from paper plates made of pressed palm leaves or recycled milk cartons to grocery bags made of glued up newspapers. Even a drink container made of a coconut shell ...containing coconut milk! wow!
