The Fair Trade+ Galleries – Summer 2018 Highlights

May 2, 2018

Largest Selection of Fair Trade Products in Chicagoland

Fair Trade is all about providing opportunities for financial independence and safe working conditions to disadvantaged workers in developing nations as well as right here in the US. Even though our Fair Trade+ Gallery is only 4 years old, The Little Traveler has become well known in Fair Trade circles. Annette Shamloo, our Fair Trade buyer, is able to network with and learn from leaders in the industry.

She’s pictured here with Anna Bottila and Joy McBrien, operations manager and founder, respectively, of Fair Anita, a Minneapolis-based social enterprise that sells trendy fair trade products to create opportunities for women and girls in 16 countries. Read more about Annette’s recent experience at the 2018 Fair Trade Federation Conference in Westminster, CO.

New additions to our growing fair trade collection include jewelry with clean lines and modern flair by Rover & Kin, handcrafted by artisans in India.

From deep in the forests of central Africa comes organic Zambeezi lip balm and soaps, made with organic beeswax and mungongo, an edible nut long used by Zambians as a moisturizer.

Philanthropic Collections

The + in Fair Trade+ is for brands that make charitable giving an integral part of business. For every pair of TOMS shoes sold, a child in need receives a new pair of shoes.

Chavez for Charity donates to various charitable organizations through sales of colorful bracelets. When you purchase from the Chavez 11th Project collection, proceeds go to our friends at Fox Valley Food for Health, providing healthy meals to neighbors in need who struggle with serious illness. Receive a free Fox Valley Food for Health recipe with an 11th Project bracelet purchase.
