Food waste is harming the planet. When food is thrown in landfill, it produces harmful greenhouse gases - and bananas are one of the UK's most thrown away items. 1.4 million bananas go to waste every single day. In a single year, Felix will rescue 74,944 kg of bananas from businesses that have surplus.
Leon Aarts is the Head of Felix's Kitchen. Leon has made a recipe for a curry using banana peels, to show us what can be done with an unloved banana! See his recipe below.
