There has been some discussion on the Forum recently regarding the ethics of discarding personal rubbish while out walking. There are naturally strong opinions about this; especially regarding banana skins. There seems to be a diversity of opinion as to how long a banana skin will take to degrade.
In an attempt to quantify this the following images show the bio-degradation of a banana skin over a period of time.
It is to be hoped that this riveting docu-drama will be of interest to all who stumble upon this page.
N.B. Shortly after the last picture was taken the remains disappeared!
