There are 129 million  households  in the usa and one is curious  as to what they use  for foot mats in this age when the world  is resolving to use less and less of plastics.there are foot mats made from palmtree would the usa be interested in the green palm technology? Same with baskets for storage,shopping carts and hampers
Foot mats of the green palm technology  type can also be used in cars.would the supermarkets and automobile industry be interested? Nigerians and africans on the continent can make these products.and it would result in a win win situation. A victory for the environment and a victory for job creation in africa!
