Areas in Rwanada is carpeted with banana trees. Although the bananas have a clear use, the rest of the tree does not. That’s where a wonderful group of students from Enactus at Newcastle University came in. They worked closely with a village in Rwanda to create nappies and sanatary towels from what would otherwise be waste products. Not only do the villagers now have a sustainable product, they have a sustainable business that they can continue once their British students return home.
