On national banana day, Wednesday 17th of April, SUNT opened the very first real banana bar in the Netherlands. And that had nothing to do with the eponymous bar in the red light district of Amsterdam. We replaced the topless bar for a topping bar, the half-naked ladies made way for people in banana suits and instead of a lap dance you could get a free slice of banana bread. All you had to do was hand in your old or remaining banana at the banana bar. These bananas were used to make the most delicious and responsible banana breads! And we gave them away to a Ronald MC Donald house in Amsterdam. In a fun way we wanted to show that food waste is a serious problem. Together we can work towards a waste-free food industry.
The banana bar on tour!
Because not everyone was able to be there on national banana day, we will be visiting several Albert Heijn shops in to introduce you to sustainable banana bread. From Vlissingen to Amsterdam and from Nijmegen to The Hague. This way you can still get a free slice of banana bread and gain some karma points. With every banana bread we hand out, we save 3 bananas from the trash. So; come and taste the waste!
