This research aim to utilize banana peels as main material of edible film. Banana peels are combinated with gliserol as plasticizer and clove oil as antimicrobial. Plasticizer make edible film more elastic and flexible. Clove oil as preservative of edible film that prevent growth of microba, bactery, and mushroom. This reaserch is divided two steps, first step is making banana peel starch, banana peels which have been pulverize, filtered with addition of water and press with cloth filter until grouts not produce filtrate. And the filtrate is precipitated for 34-48 hours and then its dried. Second step is making edible film which add aquadest 100 ml, banana starch 2%, gliserol 30%, and clove oil 4%.
