At a glimpse, Bintang Supermarket in Ubud looks just like other supermarkets across Bali. A banner announcing that it no longer provides plastic bags welcomes visitors upon entering the place – something that is now common practice on the island following a ban on single-use plastic bags issued by the administration earlier this year.
However, something different can be seen on one of the supermarket's fresh vegetable racks. Instead of plastic, the eggplants, water spinach, asparagus and other fresh produce is wrapped in banana leaves and bamboo straps.
