INTRODUCTION
A. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
It is said that “A shoe is not only a design, but it's a part of your body language, the way you walk. The way you're going to move is quite dictated by your shoes” just an evident of how intricate a shoe is-in yourself and in the eyes of the people around you. Going back to history, in societal belief, the person with a high-profiled has an identity of having polished-leathered shoes in his/her feet. At this modern era, everyone has its decision whether to use shoe polisher or not, something that diminished the gap between the so-called high people and lower ones.
Shoe polish used to polish, shine, and waterproof leather shoes or boots to extend the footwear's life, and restore, maintain and improve their appearance (thefreedictionary). Shoe polish had been widely used even before the twentieth century, during the medieval times, dubbin- a waxy product, was used to soften and waterproof leather but did not made the leather shine until they tried to mixed the beeswax and lanolin as bases that until now major company of boot polish is using. Another historical file, the popularity of shoe polish paralleled a general rise in leather and synthetic shoe production, beginning in the 19th century and continuing into the 20th. The World Wars saw a surge in demand for the product, in order to polish army boots and contributed to its fame all over the globe.
Focusing to our study, we will use the banana peel extract and coconut husk ashes in making true our research. Coconut is the fruit of the most economically important member of the great palm family, Palmae. The genus cocos is Southeast Asian and contains only one species, C. nucifera .Cultivated in tropical lowlands, almost always near the sea. For centuries, the coconut tree has supplied the pacific islands with food, drinks, shelter and most of their needs. The root furnishes as a dye; the trunks are used for post in buildings and outnumbered uses of it. Undeniable of its title-“Tree of Life”
A banana is an edible fruit produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants in the genus Musa. Musa species are native to tropical Indomalaya and Australia, and are likely to have been first domesticated in Papua New Guinea. They are grown in at least 107 countries, primarily for their fruit, and to a lesser extent to make fiber, banana wine and as ornamental plants. In 2013 bananas were fourth among the main world food crops (after rice, wheat, and maize) in financial value. The word banana is thought to be of West African origin, possibly from the Wolof word banaana, and passed into English via Spanish or Portuguese
By the application of these materials we can at least lessen the squandered dirt especially the coconut husk for it was proven that these are one of the main hinders in the continuous water system flow in our town that lead to a disastrous flooding thus collaborating the government in pursuing our place, a safer one to settle in and we also look-forward, if ever this study provide a positive outcome, to cooperate to the government to make a livelihood that will promote usage of this shoe polish tracing from our study for it is an eco-friendly product. Various researches had concluded that commercial boot-polish that is made of synthetic materials has become one of the endemic pollutants because of its chemical substance called Nitrobenzene that was mixed.

B. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
The study aims to make an effective shoe polish out of burned coconut husk with banana peel extract. Specifically, the study endeavor to answer the following questions:
1. How effective is the experimented shoe polish in term of the shine it gives?
2. Does its effectiveness last for a long time?
3. How long does the shoe polish effectiveness bring?
4. Does it give satisfying color when apply to the shoes?
5. Is the made polish a quick-dry one for the dust not to precipitate on the shoes?
6. Is there a thin-layer formation observed on the shoes that will serve as the barrier between the polished surface and the moisture filled environment?
7. Does it give pleasing odor?
8. Will this product be an economical shoe polish for the people?
9. What is the difference between the shoe polish available in the market from the shoe polish out of burned coconut husk with banana peel extract?
C. SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
One of the main benefits of a shoe shine is that it helps preserve the material that shoes are made out of. Polishing products also provides the coating of wax on the leather that helps in keeping it waterproof and reduces the dirt accumulated on the leather. Shoe polish also gives a moisturizing effect to the leather and proper care may help in lasting the shoes for several years.
The result of this research will categorically help the different sector of our community and can be a basis of improvement for the refinement of this product.
The findings of this study will be significant to the following entities:
FAMILY. The result of this study will benefit them to encourage this unit to promote an eco-friendly product and to use the harmless yet effective output than the commercialized product. Also, an affordable one by them if ever.
COMMUNITY. The outcome will give an idea to them that a waste that block the water system flow can be a sufficient product to its member and can will help to minimize or even prevent the effects of flooding.
LGU. The findings can be an insight to make a new livelihood program, regarding this study, to the people and provide a better idea for local government on what intervention is appropriate in health safety of its constituents.
FUTURE RESEARCHERS. It will serve as a tool, reference, and guide in the conducting related research.

The researchers profound the hypothesis on the study on;
Ho: there is no significant difference between the efficiency of the shoe polish made of coconut husk ash with banana peel extract to commercial shoe polish that was sold on the market.
Ha: there is a significant difference between the efficiency of the shoe polish made of coconut husk ash with banana peel extract to commercial shoe polish that was sold on the market.

E. SCOPE AND LIMITATION

REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE AND STUDY
For the purpose of comparison and analysis various materials such as books, periodicals, magazines, and studies related to the present endeavor had been reviewed in order for the researcher to gain an in-depth of enlightenment on the conditions of the study.

Related Literature
Uganda Investment Authority (2013) ,Activated Carbon from burned coconut husk is an amorphous form of carbon, which when treated, produces a highly porous structure with a very large internal surface area. This gives the ability to activated carbon to absorb gases and vapors in gaseous phase and attain the property of quick dry. niir.organization (2008) said that activated carbon use in air conditioning systems to control odours and industrial recovery and control of vapours has been very significant of activated carbon has boost up its market potential existing at present & has much under scope in future. And when it applies as shoe polish, it can control the odor that the paraffin wax could give and remains the moisture of wax.
Extraordinary Uses for Ordinary Things. Reader's Digest. 2004,Published an article that banana has the potential substance that give gloss to leather. UK Competition Commission (2007) Concluded that the oils and the potassium in the banana polish helps preserve your shoes and strengthen the leather quality of shoes. In addition, Diy Doctor (November 27, 2007) said that banana peel emits a wax or oily impregnation. The application of the wax or oil gives a depth of colour which cannot be duplicated by surface colour and will age beautifully over-time.
CASE STUDY
P.B. Madakson D.S. Yawas and A. Apasi (2006)concluded that the coconut husk ash can withstand a high temperature with a density of 2. 5g/cm³. That means this ash can be use in production light weight MMCs component with good thermal resistance. And if used as an active ingredient in making of shoe polish, it can give better protection on the footwear for it can control too much heat that can destroy the quality of the shoes. Also, Karpagavallie ( 2009) emphasize that activated carbon from the ash of coconut husk exhibits good adsorption characteristics that make the polish coat the shoe for longer time carl alfred sagala (2013) found out that coconut hush ash is has an slight effect on terms of its general properties- gloss, odor, effectiveness in measure of time span, color, thin-layer formation, and quick-dry compares to the commercial shoe polish.
Hannah Gabrielle Doncillo (2013) Shown on their result that banana peel has no significant effects on shoe polish making and said that it can be a potential ingredients for a shoe polish thus making some modification on materials.
Marjorie G. Dela Cruz, Irish Joy R. Dela Vega, Jean Pauline H. Layug, Ralp Lawrence B. Perez (2009) .The researchers confirmed that banana peel can be made into a shoe polish but the commercial shoe polish has a slight difference from the banana (Musa Paradisiaca) peel shoe polish. Therefore, it can only serve as an alternative shoe polish.

Paper Charcoal

...Activated Charcoal: Good or Bad?   Activated charcoal is charcoal that has been treated with oxygen, which makes it more porous and increases its surface area. This also increases its capacity to absorb gases and liquids, which works by chemically binding the impurities to the carbon surface. Activated charcoal is most typically utilized to remove odorous substances from the atmosphere.  Wood, peat, coconut shells, coal and sawdust are the most common materials used for making activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is most commonly found in aquarium filters, drinking-water filters and air filters; and has a role in the treatment of ingested poisons for humans. What is Charcoal? Charcoal is produced from the combustion of plant material, most typically wood, and closely resembles coal. It is extensively produced in the developing world, where it is used as a fuel for cooking and heating requirements. It is produced by heating wood at a low temperature in the absence of oxygen. All that remains after this process is the black carboniferous material know as charcoal. Activated Charcoal for Human Health Activated charcoal is utilized in human health, particularly in the treatment of poisoning, where it is ingested to counter the effects of a chemical.  It is generally produced in a powdered form, which can be mixed with water and consumed as a suspension, or as a food supplement for where it comes in small, readily digested tablets or capsules. This form of activated......

Effectiveness of Paper Charcoal as Fuel Source

...White coal is a form of fuel produced by drying chopped wood over a fire. It differs from charcoal which is carbonised wood. White coal was used in England to smelt lead ore from the mid-sixteenth to the late seventeenth centuries. It produces more heat than green wood but less than charcoal and thus prevents the lead evaporating.[1] White coal could be used mixed with charcoal for other industrial uses than lead smelting.[2] White coal was produced in distinctive circular pits with a channel, known as Q-pits. They are frequently found in the woods of South Yorkshire. Nowadays white coal is made from [3] * Groundnut shells * Cotton hulls and salks * Castor seed shells * Forest leaves; wood chips and shavings * Sugarcane bagasse * Rice husk and paddy straw * Mustard waste * Coir dust * Coffee husk * Sunflower waste * Maize stalks * Bajra cobs * Sesame seeds oil cake * Wheat straw Benefits of white coal:[4][5][6] * White coal is cheaper than coal and fire wood. * There is no sulphur in the white coal, therefore no toxic gases. * Moisture content is nil. * Biomass briquettes have a higher practical thermal value. * Briquettes have consistent quality, have high burning efficiency, and are ideally sized for complete combustion. * Combustion is more uniform compared to coal and boiler response to changes in steam requirements is faster, due to higher quantity of volatile matter in briquettes. ......

...by-product of charcoal production that can control pests and diseases of crops, he bought his first bottle. Having used the product, Mr. Prakrit was pleased with the ease of mixing and application. Ultimately, after observing much fewer insect pests and fungal diseases on his crops, he became convinced of the effectiveness of wood vinegar. Not long afterwards, Mr. Prakrit became self sufficient in producing both charcoal and wood vinegar with a 200-liter horizontal drum kiln. He has been an advocate of wood vinegar ever since. Wood vinegar (pryoligneous liquor) is rapidly gaining acceptance as an essential Asian natural farming input. Reported agricultural use as a fertilizer and growth-promoting agent goes back to the 1930s, making the product a relatively new innovation. Uses of Wood Vinegar According to Thailand’s Department of Agriculture, wood vinegar has the following broad benefits: • Improvement of soil quality • Elimination of pests • Plant growth control; being able to accelerate the development of roots, stems, tubers, leaves, flowers, and fruit • Used to increase amounts of fruit produced in orchards Dr. Arnat Tancho at Mae Jo University also reports that wood vinegar can be applied to the soil surface to help increase the population of beneficial microbes and to promote plant root growth.

...SEALANT COSTS Sir, I was interested to read the practice paper by Dr Bonetti on Evidence not practised: The underutilisation of preventive fissure sealants.1 In the recently published clinical guideline by the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN),2 it has been suggested that resin-based PFSs should be applied to the permanent molars of all children as early after eruption as possible. In other words, applications should usually take place between the ages of 6-7 years for first permanent molars and 11-12 years for second permanent molars. In 2012/13, approximately 30% of primary 7 children (mean age 11.5 years) in Scotland received PFSs.3 In Scotland, the current cost of application of PFS to unfilled permanent molar teeth within two years of their eruption is £8.15 per tooth.4 To increase the uptake of PFSs in first permanent molars from 30% to 60% in Scottish children aged 6-7 years, SIGN estimated that the incremental cost would be over £1 million. Similarly, over £1 million would be required to double the uptake of PFSs in second permanent molars in Scottish children aged 11-12 years.2 It was not possible to segregate visits incorporating treatment with visits representing routine examinations in the above estimated costs; therefore, the total cost of service provision in Scotland may have been underestimated. However, potential savings from restorations avoided are also excluded.2 Implementation of the SIGN guideline is the responsibility of each NHS......

Scented Paper Charcoal

...Advantages of using Paper Charcoal 1. Concentrated. Since Paper Charcoals are created from compressing combustible material such as paper, it is denser, harder, and more compact compared to other charcoals. 2. Slow-burning. The compression process allows the paper charcoal to burn for a lot longer than if it was loose in its original form. 3. More efficient. Along with the compactness of the paper charcoal is the increase in heating value. This greater efficiency can be attributed to their low moisture and density. 4. Availability. Paper is the main component in producing this product. So where do we get this paper? Look around you, and there are loads of paper materials here, there, and everywhere. 5. Easily stored. The size and shape of paper charcoal make them easily be stored. We can readily pile them in several heaps because of their fun shapes like cubical, spherical, cylindrical, or rectangular blocks. They are likewise clean to handle and be packed into bags. 6. Cheaper. Since this charcoal can be domestically made from waste paper, they are consequently less expensive to produce, and thereby sold at lower prices. 7. Renewable. This charcoal makes use of waste materials which are common and renewable. Hence, we are ensured of the sustainability of such fuel source. 8. Easier to lit. The use of paper as the main component makes it easier to light compared to wood charcoals. Therefore, the use of gas, plastic and other methods of ignition will no longer be necessary. 9...

When we learned Dr. Chidumayo would be honored at the international ATBC-SCB conference in Arusha, Tanzania, in June (where we organized a symposium and workshop on charcoal) we pounced on him! Dr. Emmanuel Chidumayo is considered the dean of African tropical ecologist. He presented at TCP's charcoal symposium. Dr. Chidumayo was gracious enough to present at our symposium and participate in our workshop. (I was also lucky enough to be seated next to him at dinner where he regaled me with the stories about how he began his career as an ecologist, his time in government, and his passion for conservation.) Dr. Chidumayo’s presentation, “Environmental Impacts of Charcoal Production in Tropical Ecosystems of the World,” is a treasure trove of information. In addition to the scholarly research, my favorite part is the takeaway message, which I’ve transcribed below: The charcoal industry has great potential to contribute to rural development because production utilizes locally available and potentially renewable resources. The charcoal industry can generate employment and local income in both rural and urban areas. Additionally, Dr. Chidumayo points to the following necessary changes in policies: 1. Recognition of charcoal as a key source of energy. 2. Establishment of specific institutions to implement wood energy policies. 3. The effective regulation of charcoal......
