Meet our friends at Chicago Fair Trade

Chicago Fair Trade believes that consumers in the Chicagoland area play a huge role in the global economy. The consumer choices that we make here–as individuals, families, and institutions–shape the lives of workers and producers around the world. Our everyday choices can enrich or impoverish; they can empower or enslave. Conscious consumers who make ethical choices are an engine not just of economic growth, but of economic justice.
