How Your Banana Peels Could Save Your Indoor Plants

Before you toss your banana peels into the compost, there is another way we can give a second life to this food waste...and if you are a plant enthusiast (like us) you will thank us for this sustainable hack! 

What if we told you that you could turn your discarded banana peels into something actually useful? That's right, folks, we're talking about fertiliser. And not just any fertiliser, but a rich, nutrient-packed liquid that will turn your plants into bona fide green machines.


So, how do we start giving these peels the second life they deserve? 

  1. Firstly, cut your banana peels into 1cm squares.
  2. Place them into a jar and cover with water until the jar is full.
  3. Now, store in your pantry or cupboard for 2-3 day (I give the jar a shake every day too).
  4. After this time period remove from storage and strain out the banana peels.
  5. Then pour the remaining liquid onto your plants. 

What emerges from this scientific experiment is a super nutrient-packed liquid that your plants will adore. It's like the plant equivalent of a protein shake! So go ahead, give your plants the boost they deserve - no one needs to know it came from your kitchen scraps.
