In an article published by this paper on December 8, we were introduced to a Kayonza-based carpenter, Mr. Habiyaremye, who makes furniture from banana fibres.
This type of innovation is worth applause as it touches our mental comforts and opens our eyes and minds into possibilities beyond what we are used to. As the writer suggested, not so many people can think of alternative uses of banana trunks other than agricultural waste, after harvesting.
This was one of the reads in 2015 that I was happy to come by. To me, it was such a great inspiration which, as I put in my immediate comments to this article, quenches my research curiosity as it offers a quality empirical explanation that, a bottom- up intervention into sustainable development (SD) has value worth considering in making the social, economic and environmental/ecological perspectives of SD operational even at the global scale.
