Banana processing plant

At this stage of banana processing, the workers are placing bunches of bananas in plastic bags just before they are placed in boxes for export. Bananas and coffee are the two traditional agricultural export crops of Costa Rican.

This photo illustrates the benefits of one of the steps to be taken as part of the Banana Industry Action Plan Against Climate Change that I described in my post a couple of days ago. Using biodegradable plastics for the many plastic bags used in the industry will help, primarily in the consumer countries such as the USA and Canada, where the plastic bags you see in this photo will be disposed.
