Les cartons de bananes

At the big market, these French Carribbean banana boxes have been recycled by stallholders and now serve to carry kitchen utensils to and from the stalls.

Eh oui, la banane des Antilles est devenue ustensile de cuisine, son carton se recycle pour certains vendeurs...

Much more colorful than the brown banana boxes I'm used to seeing. Immediately post-college, I found the banana box to be particularly beneficial for packing and carrying.

That would drive me bananas! How do you know which utensils are in which box? ;-)

Actually, it is a great idea. One thing we like about Stone Creek is that we have a good recycling program!

Considering the low cost paid to banana growers, these boxes cost a pretty penny to print in color!

One of my favorite fruits. When I worked inside the port I used to smuggle a case of bananas like these, once and then...

Bananas are my favorite, but they can't be too ripe. Very colorful boxes!
