So today, on this very special episode of New Orleans in Green, I want to talk about banana production. Some of us around Nola are lucky enough to have banana trees producing fruit in our own yards!... but not most. So I want to make sure you know that those big brands, Dole and Chiquita namely, are evil devil companies - the DeBeerses of the banana world. Please do not buy their bananas! Please instead search out fair trade or Rainforest Alliance labeled products whenever you get the chance. And check out this book if you want to know more about the more sinister side of banana production.
In conclusion: Boo for abuse and poisons. Hooray for fair and healthy bananas!
|I'm Dole Banana and I'm here to say... have some poison in your food today!|
