Whether you are eco friendly, or just trying to reduce the amount of weight you carry around in your pockets. Green Banana Eco Factory has created the perfect wallet that is solving both of those problems. The Slim Wallet is slim, strong and sustainable. I have found that it is perfect for hiking, travel, or a trip to the gym. It has made it easy to carry the cards I need without having a bulky wallet.

The Slim Wallet is made entirely of banana fibers, which are renowned for being remarkably strong and lightweight. Weighing in at only 12 grams, I can barely tell that my wallet is there as I go about my day.  Designed for lightweight and ease, it can hold quite a few cards and money. I was so happy that I could surprisingly fit so many of cards into it. At maximum capacity, it holds my ID, 6 cards, and 12 bills. The front of the wallet also has a clear viewing window, making it very convenient for me to show identification cards without having to pull them out.

The manufacturing of The Slim Wallet is not only friendly for the environment, but also provides work to the local island economy. Green Banana Eco Factory was started to recycle eco waste from banana farms in Micronesia, while also providing jobs for those in need. I am happy knowing that the purchase of my wallet made not only an economical impact, but also a social impact.

What I love about this wallet, is that it is completely biodegradable and has so many convenient features. It will be so nice to be able to walk around without bulky wallet in my pocket. There are so many situations that I will enjoy this wallet in such as visiting theme parks, riding my bike, hiking, rock climbing, and it is 100% ethically made.
