Bananas!*

We advise our children to eat oranges and bananas instead of sweets, and the more the better. But for the producing side, the farmers, the picture of healthy Bananas looks different.

All over the world, banana plantation workers are suffering and dying from the effects of pesticides that are used for cultivation. One third of the production price of the average banana is used simply to cover the cost of these pesticides.

For a deeper inside view on this issue we would like to recommend you the documentary “Bananas!*” by Fredrik Gertten and which was nominated for the Cinema for Peace Award for Justice in 2010.
