Background of the Study

        The use of commercial paper in our daily basis plays a significant role. It was evident that most of us use these papers especially for work, school and even in households. Production of commercial paper need great amounts of resources to produce quality and reliable material. Industrialization in the production and manufacturing can contribute harmful effects due to advancements and modernization which is likely to add in environmental issues like global warming and other kinds of pollution. As a result, it can be the medium for certain problems in terms of environmental awareness and connecting to the depletion of resources which was of improper utilization and manufacturing for production. With this, paper was one result of the utilization and extraction of trees.

        Currently, Philippines experiences tremendous logging in protected areas to supply the demand of the people and used for some purpose. Illegal logging is one of the drastic environmental problems that may contribute to the destruction of forests, landslides, erosions, floods, and loss of habitats of all protected animals in the area. And all these irresponsible actions contribute to environmental problems and issues that also triggers the increase in pollution.

Logging have been a major problem to the environment and to the economy. And production of paper would not be made possible without utilizing trees, so it takes great numbers to supply the demands of growing economy and industry. The manufacturing of trees in producing paper was evidently faster than the time it consumes to grow and replaced. Although it is a renewable resource, still it takes long period of time to recover totally.

For this reason, the use of banana pseudo stem fiber (Musa paradisiaca), coconut coir fiber (Cocos nucifera), and abaca fiber (Musa textilis) was utilized and made as handmade source of raw material in the production of paper. This study dealt on the quality of paper in terms of its smoothness, durability, capacity and tensile strength.

Statement of the Problem

        Generally, this study was conducted to determine the feasibility of banana pseudo stem fiber (Musa paradisiaca), coconut coir fiber (Cocos nucifera) and abaca fiber (Musa textilis) as raw material components for handmade paper. Specifically, this study answered the following questions:

  1. Which among the treatments had the most durable and smoothest quality?
  2. What was the quality of the paper being produced in terms of:
  1. Smoothness; and
  2. Tensile Strength?
  1. What was the feasibility of the banana pseudo stem fiber (Musa paradisiaca), coconut coir fiber (Cocos nucifera), and abaca fiber (Musa textilis) in different mixtures?

Significance of the Study

This study aimed to find out the potential of using banana pseudo stem fiber (Musa paradisiaca), coconut fiber (Cocos nucifera), and abaca fiber (Musa textilis) reinforced as handmade paper.

Specifically, it will be beneficial to the following;

To the Environment. The use of banana pseudo stem fiber (Musa paradisiaca), coconut coir fiber (Cocos nucifera) and abaca fiber (Musa textilis) manufactured as handmade paper will address the environment problem in terms of reducing pollution.

To the Industry. The industry will have increased income because of abundancy in production of paper in the country by utilization of alternatives as their medium.

To the Farmers. Farmers will be able to market more of banana, coconut, and abaca in ways of increasing their income to become more productive.

To the Consumers. The consumers will benefit to the study in ways of having them experience a safe and innovated handmade product to their households for their own convenience.

To the Economy. The economy will benefit as the production rate of paper either commercial or alternative will help increase the income of the country in terms of being manufacturer and distributor of the created product.
