About Chilly Dog
Chilly Dog was founded in 2001 to fill a niche. Having a retail store in downtown Philadelphia, they were unable to find a well-made dog sweater at a moderate price point. They formed a relationship with the Inca Artisans in South American to create a hand knit wool dog sweater that would fit every dog! They have always followed fair trade guidelines, are made from 100% wool and use plant dyes. Chilly Dog has been able to employ many knitters in healthy workplaces, and enable them to support a better lifestyle in their small villages by being paid a fair living wage. Chilly Dog keeps up with the latest trends to keep dogs fashionable as well as warm. These are the warmest and best quality sweaters you will find out there! Don’t let your dog be left out in the cold!

What is Fair Trade?
We live in a world of gross social and economic inequalities which is leaving millions of people without the basic necessities of food, water, housing, education, health-care etc. Millions of small farmers are being dramatically affected by the globalization, international trade policies, third world debt and are losing their farms, livelihoods and are unable to feed their families or provide for other basic necessities of life. Similarly, landless workers are seeing worsening working conditions, low pay and unsafe working environments as developing countries compete to attract foreign investment by offering the cheapest labor.
Fair Trade, is an alternative system of trade which counteracts this system of international free trade, corporate control and global policies by giving the farmers and workers a living wage for their work, which can sustain them and also create opportunities for social and economic development. We examine in some detail the system of fair trade, the different players involved, the different agreements that have to be followed to qualify a product as fair trade and some issues with fair trade.
