"Wed Altered's ethical approach to weddings fits with our own philosophy of offering unique, ethical wedding gifts to consumers who care about the products that they buy," said Paul Culler, co-founder of Fair Trade Winds. Culler, along with his wife Lois, owns six brick and mortar Fair Trade Winds stores across the country. "People often buy wedding gifts for their friends or family at our stores, so we are excited to partner with Wed Altered to reach more of those socially conscious consumers."
Fair Trade Winds offers a unique wedding registry experience for couples who are planning a wedding. They can be sure that the products they select will reflect their own ethical values. All of Fair Trade Winds' products are handmade, fairly traded and often made from sustainable, recycled and re-purposed materials. Their products include handmade jewelry, decor and wall art, sustainable photo-albums and frames, and a variety of housewares such as kitchen and dining accessories, hand blocked table linens, recycled glassware.
Fair Trade Winds seeks to empower customers to become an integral part of a global, cooperative effort to benefit artisans, farmers, and the environment. Fair Trade ensures that craftspeople and farmers work in safe and empowering conditions, that there is no child labor, and the artisans are encouraged to invest time and money into their talents, land, families, and communities.
In 2007, Lois and Paul Culler founded Fair Trade Winds in Bar Harbor, ME. Since then they have opened stores in Fairfax, VA, Stony Brook, NY, Seattle, WA, Springfield, OH, and Jamestown, RI.
