The Banana Pack

Banana Link (2006)

Three excellent resources giving information and ideas for work around bananas and fair trade. - The Best of the Bunch is full of information about Fairtrade bananas, and the current situation in the Windward Islands. It celebrates what has been achieved and will inspire young people to take action. - Bananas Unpeeled is a video with teaching and action notes, which looks at life on banana plantations in Latin America where harsh working conditions and environmental degradation are the norm. It examines the actions of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and its effect on Caribbean farmers where alternatives such as fair trade are emerging. - The Truth about Bananas is an information and activity pack containing useful information on banana production and trade, and an 'action for change' section with discussion, role plays and ideas for taking action.
