Introduction
Background of the Study
Bananas are among the most widely consumed fruits on the planet and, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Americans' favorite fresh fruit. The curvy yellow fruits are high in "potassium and pectin, a form of fiber," said Laura Flores, a San Diego-based nutritionist. They can also be a good way to get magnesium and vitamins C and B6. "Bananas are high in antioxidants, which can provide protection from free radicals, which we come into contact with every day, from the sunlight to the lotion you put on your skin," Flores added.
Hawaii is the only place in the U.S. where bananas are grown commercially, although at one time they were also grown in southern California and Florida. The overwhelming majority of the bananas Americans eat come from countries in Latin America and South America, including Costa Rica, Ecuador, Colombia, Honduras, Panama, and Guatemala.
Bananas were first found in New Guinea and spread throughout the Philippines nearly 4,000 years ago, and from their diversified around the world. They became a popular item in India, Indonesia, Australia, and Malaysia and were even used to make clothes and other fabrics in Japan. It wasn’t until they hit colonial plantations in America that they were used for inter cropping plants such as coffee, cacao, and pepper plantations. Their leaves provided the perfect shade for the more valuable plants, which was only the beginning of their endless environmental uses and health benefits.
Bananas are rich in vitamin B6, manganese, vitamin C, fiber, potassium, biotin, and copper. They have the power to prevent high blood pressure and protect against atherosclerosis. As a very low-fat food, it can also help keep blood cholesterol levels at healthy safe balances, according to the George Mateljan Foundation, a non-profit health organization.
Their high levels of tryptophan convert into serotonin and help people overcome depression. Their iron levels relieve anemia and have the power to counteract calcium loss and enable bone strengthening. They’re also a natural antacid and can provide relief from acid re-flux, heart burn, and can restore electrolytes lost after dehydration from diarrhea, according to Food Matters.
To this day, we eat 3.2 billion pounds of bananas each year, which is about 304 bananas every second of the day. Instead of throwing the 780 million pounds of peels into the landfills and wasting their potential benefits, try out some of these uses for your lifestyle.
Many species of primate consume the entire banana, peel and all, which may have led indigenous peoples to follow suit. Although not common practice in the West, peoples of Asian countries eat banana peels, but they are usually cooked in some capacity. They are not nearly as sweet as the flesh, but they are rich in some nutrients, especially potassium, and can be used for a variety of other health benefits.
In other country they have 10 useful ways to protect banana peel from waste but were going to get five of it. First is they use banana peel to fertilize tomato plants. Second, they used it as compost and relieve itches and rashes. Fourth, they make banana vinegar using banana peel. Fifth, using banana peel, the ripe one, they used t to tenderize meat. Banana peel, known as a banana skin in British English, is the outer covering of the banana fruit. Banana peels are used as feedstock as they have some nutritional value. Banana peels are widely used for that purpose on small farms in regions where bananas are grown. There are some concerns over the impact of tannins contained in the peels on animals that consume them. Banana peels are used as feed stock for cattle, goats, pigs, poultry, rabbits, fish and several other species.
A shoe polish is used specifically to shine leather footwear. Traditional shoe polished is composed of lots of toxic, flammable and harmful chemicals that can harm us if misused. It is very often that we stain our skin and clothes inadvertently when using this chemical based shoe polish. By using these kinds of shoe polishes in the market, we’re destroying our environment because of the non-ecofriendly materials that contains in this product. It is applied to leather footwear using a cloth or brush, and is then rubbed in vigorously to ensure an even coat. Buffing is also necessary, and sometimes several coats will be needed to achieve the desired shine. A common method of polishing shoes is known as the “spit shine,” and involves rubbing the polish into the shoe with a drop of water, or in some cases, actual saliva. This technique is typically associated with military organizations, and creates a very high-gloss finish. Some manufacturers make a form of shoe polish that is soaked into an applicator, similar to a wet sponge. Some of these polishes come in squeeze bottles with an applicator attached to the end. These types are usually liquid, and much thinner than traditional wax-based polishes. Their main benefit is convenience, although many would argue that they can’t deliver the same level of shine for which wax polish is known. It may sound a bit like a lark, but using a banana peel is actually a great way to put the shine back into your silverware and leather shoes. First, remove any of the leftover stringy material from the inside of the peel, then just start rubbing the inside of the peel on your shoes or silver. When you’re done, buff up the object with a paper towel or soft cloth. You might even want to use this technique to restore your leather furniture. Test it on a small section first before you take on the whole chair.

Statement of the Problem
The researcher would like to know further about the effectiveness of the banana peel as shoe polish and would like to answer the following question: 1. What kind of banana peel is going to use as shoe polish? 2. Is the different kinds of banana peel is effective as shoe polish? 3. How long will the shine last on the shoes? 4. Is the banana peel good substitute to the real shoe polish?
Objectives
The researchers would like to achieve the following objectives: a. To know when will the shine last on the leather shoes. b. To know the effectiveness of the product. c. To know if one of the banana peel of laktan, latundan or señorita is the best shoe polish.

Scope and Limitations
The scope of our topic is only about the banana feel as a shoe polish. This proposal will discuss the advantage and disadvantage of using banana feel as a shoe polish. This proposal will also present the cost and steps how to make shoe polish out of a banana feel. Our proposal will not focus on the fruit itself but only on the peel. We will not discuss the health benefits and its history.

Significance of the Study

This study would be most useful and significant to the following: I. People who are fun of shinning their shoes. The outcome of the study will provide them knowledge to their habit in shining their shoes. The findings will pinpoint the efficiencies of a banana peel as their shoes shine with a lesser expensive from their pocket. II. The people will learn how to save money. The banana peel will be useful, instead of throwing it in the trashcan, people will use it for shinning their shoe III. People who spent money in buying a shoes shine happens during school day, especially to the students who usually use leather shoes. Students could not sustain to buy from their own pocket, but with banana feel, this would help students lesser their expenses.

PROJECT INFORMATION
Overview:
B-SHINE is a product that will be used on shining the shoes of the consumers. The materials used in making this product are 100% toxic free and recycle which means B-SHINE will not only help the consumers in shining their own shoes, but will also help to the economy in terms of recycling. B-SHINE aims to prove to the consumer that it can be more effective shoe shine than the other brands that used chemicals. As of now, the product that we will be promoting is just the banana peel. We will just make it appealing to the eyes of the consumers by putting a handle on it and putting design. If the feedback of the customers is good, then that will be the only time that we will developed the cream. The researchers used three different kinds of banana peel to ensure that we will give the most effective one. The researchers named the product as B-SHINE because we used “B” as a shortcut to banana and shine symbolizes what it does. The name B-SHINE can make the consumer think and attract them to try this product. When this product became effective, the researchers assure you that it will still make improvements to serve the consumers better. The selling price of the B-SHINE will be a little cheaper than the traditional shoe polish because of using recycled materials. Our company will also offer promos and free sample in order for the consumer to try the product.

Strength: B-SHINE product is made by recycled materials and it is toxic free. Because of using recycled materials, we can assure you that the price of our product will be a little cheaper than the other products. Our company will easily get the materials that we will need without paying any money. Our company will collect banana peels to all the restaurants and fast food chains that uses banana all as their ingredients. The only thing that we will spend is on transportation. Since our product is still new, we will be eager to prove to the consumers that our product is worth the price. Unlike other brands, that requires you to put the cream in the shoes and then let it dry before you can brush it, B-SHINE will let consumers to apply it directly and that will be possible because we made our product looks like a brush so it will be easy to apply and save time. B-SHINE product can also last long and we can assure you that its effectiveness will also last long.

Weakness: B-SHINE product will face lots of struggle in the first few months of selling. It will be hard and takes time for us to convince consumers to use our product instead of other products who already prove their worth in the industry. B-SHINE product will also rely to some restaurants and food chains on their materials so it depends on them on how many B-SHINE products could we make. Since we are still new in the industry, it will take time for us to prove our worth in the industry.

Shoe Polish Out of Banana Peel Extract

...Shoe Polish out of Banana Peel extract An Investigative Project Presented to: Mr. Paul Keenan C. Butt At Philippine Women’s University Jose Abad Santos Edsa QC In Partial fulfilment of the research in Chemistry By: Gabrielle Balanon III-Newton March 2014 Abstract The product of my research is a shoe polish made out of Banana peel extract. Tannin, an astringent that is an important ingredient in the process of tanning leather, can be found in Banana peels. This makes it an efficient ingredient for making shoe polish. I also decided to use Banana peels because there is a significant amount of banana peel waste being generated all around the world, so instead of just throwing them away and letting them rot, it’s better to put them to good use. The materials and ingredients needed for my research are very easy to get a hold of and doesn’t cost much as well. The process of making the product won’t take long either. It is a very affordable and effective product. It goes to show that Banana peels are more than just a part of the classic physical comedy slapstick visual gag, the "slipping on a banana peel" because it can actually make your shoes shine. Acknowledgement In the making of this research, I have a number of people who I would like to acknowledge for their unending patience and their big help. Firstly, I would like to acknowledge my parents. For all the patience they have given me. They have put in the effort......

...Literature Citation When writing a research paper, literature citation is important for the following two reasons: (1) to avoid plagiarism (which is against the student code of conduct and is grounds for failing the course) and (2) to assign proper authority to a statement (this adds weight to your paper). You may use any style of literature citation as long as the proper authorities are cited in the text and full references are provided at the end of your paper. Here is an example of a style that is common in the biological literature. In-Text Citations Whether you are directly quoting or paraphrasing, your reference is cited in the text, before the end of the statement. The in-text citation consists of the author(s) last name(s) and the year of publication. For example, Drosophila magnaquinaria, fruit flies that are only found on skunk cabbage, prefer other hosts for feeding, egg-laying, and larval development than they do skunk cabbage (Courtney and Kibota, 1990). If there are more than two authors, then you may list the first author’s name followed by et al. For example, Mutational studies of Daphnia, Drosophila, Caenorhabditis, and Escherichia all provide estimates for the genomic deleterious mutation rate (Lynch et al., 1999).

Abd El-azeem3 1: Holding Company for Potable Water and Sanitation, Fayoum, Egypt 2: Instrumental Analytical Chemistry, University of Duisburg-Essen, Essen, Germany 3: Chemistry Departement, Faculty of Science, Fayoum University, Fayoum, Egypt Introduction Water is one of the vital necessities for the survival of human beings. Wastewater reclamation, recycling and reuse are vital to meet the water requirements for irrigation, industry and domestic use due to increasing population and development in many parts of the world. Industrial wastewaters largely possess organic and inorganic materials such as dyes, phenols, aromatic compounds, and heavy metals [1]. Phenols cause bad taste and odor of drinking water and can exert negative effects on different biological processes. Phenol and its derivatives also show mutagenic effects by unbinding of the DNA helix, inhibition of DNA synthesis in human, induction of gene mutations, chromosome aberrations and a neuploid formations (phenol, catechol) [2]. Because of this increased awareness and concern about environmental pollution, stringent national and international legislation has been set up, generating more efforts of research work in this area, especially in finding better and more efficient techniques to treat wastewater bearing these organic pollutants [3].

...INTRODUCTION I. IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY This study was conducted to produce an alternative source of vinegar out of banana peel. It is very convenient because the Philippineshave an abundant plantation of banana plant. Our country grows many different varieties of bananas. Rather than throwing the banana peelings in the waste or tossing them in a compost bin, we can use them to make an alternative source of vinegar. The result of this study is significant to the society. Nowadays, almost all products have increased their prices. So when the time comes that the branded vinegar we’re using at home also increases its price we don’t have to worry because we already have an alternative source of vinegar.Aside from that, you can also earn money by introducing this product to your friends or neighbors. CHAPTER II RELATED LITERATURE BANANA A banana is an edible fruit produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants in the genus Musa. (In some countries, bananas used for cooking may be called plantains.) The fruit is variable in size, color and firmness, but is usually elongated and curved, with soft flesh rich in starchcovered with a rind which may be green, yellow, red, purple, or brown when ripe. The fruits grow in clusters hanging from the top of the plant. Almost all modern edible parthenocarpic (seedless) bananas come from two wild species – Musa acuminata and Musa balbisiana.
