Sustainability: bananas and pineapples

When talking about the sustainability of a coffee or banana plantation, it would be best to mention how banana plantations try to maximize the production of crop in as small a space as possible, as well as that they use every part of the banana tree. When the pandemic hit, and they could no longer export their crop to foreign buyers, they had to develop other products that could be sold locally in order to keep from ‘going under, so to speak.

If I had to choose to work at one of these two types of plantation, I would choose the banana plantation. This is largely due to the fact that pineapple plantations are almost entirely wide open spaces with little to no shade at all. Banana plantations have at least a little.
