Worldview will make its annual trek to Daley Plaza to broadcast at the World Fair Trade Day Expo on Wednesday, May 4th.
World Fair Trade Day is May 14th. It’s a celebration brings together advocates, Fair Trade organizations, social and environmental movements, producers and consumers to encourage people to make ethical purchases.
We look at what’s ahead for this year’s Expo with Katherine Bissell Cordova, executive director at Chicago Fair Trade. Joining her are Steve Sullivan, co-founder of Fibre Athletics and Shifra Whiteman, a fair trade entrepreneur, who created an educational exhibit titled, Purchasing Power: Chicago’s Relationship with Conscious Consumerism. Whiteman will soon launch her own fair trade brand, Pintl & Keyt.
