Plastic from Banana Skins – Google Science Fare
What This Turkish Girl Did Will Change The Way You Think About Bananas Forever! It’s Something That will Make Turkey Really Proud!
Meet 16 years old Elif Bilgin from Istanbul Turkey. She is the winner of the Scientific American Science in Action Award and winner of the Voter’s Choice Award for the Google Science Fair 2013.
Wanting to reduce pollution in her home city of Istanbul, Elif manufactured a new environmentally-friendly bio-plastic that uses banana peels – an organic material – instead of traditional petroleum sources.
We just hope that her home country can support her scientific experiment or creation. This could save not only people’s money, but also the placed we live in called Earth!
Great Job Elif!
