July 4, 2008 Bananas have been one of the world’s staple foods for at least 7000 years – time enough for this simple yet very useful invention to arrive. Bananas are popular with athletes and children, geriatrics and babies, and they’re one of nature’s gifts. The perfect instant energy boost, bananas are one of the world’s most traded commodities and one of the world’s most popular foods, grown in 107 countries. Sadly, bananas don’t travel well! For all their virtues, they just aren’t as appetizing when they’re squashed. Now you can carry and store your banana safely in a backpack, pocket, school bag or sports bag.

The Banana Guard fits most bananas, has sufficient ventilation to prevent premature ripening and a secure locking mechanism. The product is built to last with ‘active hinges’ providing maximum strength in the thinnest form which can withstand regular opening and closing over a period of time.

We came across the Bananaguard via Anstall direct in Australia, though it’s available throughout North America and internationally. The price in the United States is US$6.99 for a single Banana Guard, US$12.99 for a 2-pack and US$29.99 for a 5-pack.
