Founded in 2006, Chicago Fair Trade works to promote more equitable business practices across the city, including providing fair wages, using sustainable business models and establishing more transparent supply chains.

As an alternative business model, a main goal of fair trade is providing safer working conditions for the millions of people who live on less than $1 a day, especially women and children workers, according to the Chicago Fair Trade website.
