Fair Trade Bananas

I got to go to the Willy Street Co-op in Madison, Wisconsin this weekend.  Totally inspiring.

Needless to say, I was excited to see fair trade bananas for sale.  First time I have ever seen them being sold.

How horrible is the traditional banana industry?

Historically, growing the world’s most popular fruit has caused massive degradation of rainforest land across the tropics, spread noxious chemicals throughout formerly pristine watersheds, and poisoned and exploited farm workers.

Pretty horrible.
