As I have disclosed here before, I am a pretty shallow person. Like most of us, I’m taken up most of the time with matters in my own circles of concern and influence. (Apologies to Stephen Covey.)

So, until I saw these bananas (above) on my kitchen bench today, it had never occurred to me that there could be such a ‘thing’ or issue — fair trade vs (I guess) unfair trade bananas.

Does anyone know what this is about? What’s the deal?
