Chemical Bananas sticker (download)

Download a sheet of these Banana stickers and use them to stick on Bananas inside of supermarkets. Banana companies, included Chiquita are known for using carcinogenic pesticides, including Nemagon and Imazalil, reported to cause worker illness, headaches, peeling skin, and cancer. Posted by our admin, but created by our user elalande. The list of reported negative business practices by Chiquita is long, there are 3 more designs below this one based on reporting.
You will need ( tools or supplies ): 
Sticker paper (for a printer)
Color printer (or copy mat printer)
Scissors or utility knife
Step

Download the PDF or JPG banana sticker sheet.

Step

Print the file on a sheet of sticker paper in color

Step

Cut the stickers out carefully.

Step

Take the stickers to your local supermarket and put them on the bananas. Consider removing the existing stickers before you stick your new stickers on. Or, as user Makaco suggests, stick them directly over the existing stickers - faster action and a better surface for your sticker.

Here is a design based on Chiquita paying "Colombian Terror Death Squads”, like the United Self-Defense Groups of Colombia, as seen in many news sources, including the Washington Standard:

Step

Here is a design based on Chiquita’s continued deforestation of jungle habitat and the numerous species of plants and animals which inhabit them before 1991. There are better sources for the details, but I read about some of it here:

And lastly, here is a design based on one of the stories published originally by the Cincinnati Enquirer (Even though the source of the information was illegally stolen by a journalist from voicemails, that does not make the information untrue, it just gets the story squashed) This final design was hard to pick from the many problems discovered, including Chiquitas: suppressing union activity on the farms it controls, releasing harmful toxic chemicals into farms, killing at least one worker in Costa Rica according to a coroner’s report, Chiquita executives bribing Colombian officials, and Chiquita called in the Honduran military to evict residents of a farm village (the soldiers forced the farmers out at gunpoint, and the village was bulldozed). I read about this in a lot of places, but one recent one was here: https://nacla.org/blog/2013/7/4/revisiting-cincinnati-enquirer-vs-chiquita. Now these designs from the original reporting would all be good choices, but I decided to go with Chiquita’s fruit transport ships being used to smuggle cocaine into Europe (more than a ton of cocaine was seized from 7 Chiquita ships in 1997.
