Children recycle the sheets of plastic which are inserted between banana bunches as they grow, to keep them apart. Children get 2 centavos for each sheet they save in the Soyapa Farms banana plantation in San Jose Campostela, Mindanao, in the Philippines. The families on the plantation are paid so little that children have to work to supplement family income. The plantation was created by Stanfilco, the Philippine subsidiary of Dole Corporation. - David Bacon - 2007-01-05
