Fair Trade Stories
Myth: Fair trade takes away jobs in the U.S. Fact: Fair trade exists to help the world’s poorest communities and represents crafts and foods not found in the U.S. It is a common misunderstanding that fair trade siphons jobs away from the U.S. to all parts of the world. In reality, fair trade is meant to be a system that
All of the Good Stuff, None of the Bad Love is in the air, and lots of chocolate is being purchased for February 14! Do you know the story behind the chocolate bars that you buy? We sell only fair trade chocolate at Fair Trade Winds and Momentum, so you already trust that it’s a great product. But in addition
Thank you to everyone who made 2014 a great year for fair trade! We look forward to telling you more fair trade stories, sharing the incredible work of fair trade organizations committed to making real, positive change in the world, and discovering more and more wonderful handcrafted products as the fair trade movement grows!
As we roll into the new year, we want to be sure to thank everyone who has contributed a little idea to the Big Idea of fair trade in 2014. Just because fair trade isn’t flashy, it still has an impact, probably a more-lasting one than you might think. Fair trade respects everyone involved, and we think this should be making headlines! Until it does, we’ll all continue to contribute our little ideas, until little by little, a little becomes a lot!
Read how fair trade helps keep the art of block printing alive in northern India and the impact it has on artisans’ lives. Plus, get a detailed account of the many intricate steps of block carving and block printing.
In October we traveled to India to visit the block-print artisans of Jubilee Traders. See fair trade in action and learn about our growing relationships with these extremely talented artisans. It was such a great experience to be a part of their world, if only for a few days!
October is Fair Trade Month! It’s time to celebrate! There are tons of ways you can join the festivities this month. Check out some great giveaways from cool fair trade organizations.
Myth: Fair trade products are low quality. Fact: fair trade products are lovingly handmade & unique. Read more to see how we debunk this common misconception.
Momentum is now part of the Fair Trade Winds family. The name will stay the same and we’ll be keeping the store stocked with the same great fair trade merchandise (plus a few new things) loyal customers and visitors have come to expect and love!
Every product Momentum carries is crafted by the human hand, tells a story and provides employment opportunities for artisan groups around the world.
Unique, quality, hand-crafted items. All fair trade, and very reasonably priced compared to other fair trade stores/ items I've seen around the area.Teri P.
I am inspired by the creative beauty of their products and their true commitment to fair trade. Every product has an amazing story!Michelle B.
The products sold here are very unique with a global conscience. Great place to buy special gifts for the special people in your life.Kelly K.
Quite possibly the finest retail store on the planet!Matt P.
We were doing some local shopping in Boulder and happened upon this store for the first time. Once entered we were immediately greeted and advised that everything in the store supports Fair Trade all over the world. That is wonderful and so nice to hear of a store that really supports local artists with Fair Trade.
Lots of unique jewelry, knic knacs, note pads, coasters, and little things for your home. I found a couple beautiful items that I might be back for in the near future. The people here are top notch and really love what that store stands for. This alone makes me want to support this local business. Stop in and look around for some unique treasures.
I'm fairly certain that Momentum is the coolest shop on the planet. My husband and I dropped a lot of money here, but also got a lot of neat things as gifts and for ourselves. Keep in mind that everything in the store is fair trade certified, which means it's all ethically sourced and something you can definitely feel good about purchasing (unlike a lot of other goods). They have beautiful bracelets and other jewelry (I got a few of the Tagua bracelets for myself & family members), home decor items, bags, paper goods, and much more.Carrie O.
