Boulder, CO (PRWEB) December 31, 2013
Lois and Paul Culler, based in Fairfax, VA, are pleased to announce that they have purchased Momentum, a fair trade store in Boulder, Colorado, from its original owners, Kevin and Jenny Natapow. The Cullers also own six Fair Trade Winds stores across the country; each is family operated and fully-committed to fair trade. Momentum and Fair Trade Winds are an integral part of a cooperative effort to benefit farmers, artisans, and the environment.
"We are very excited to not only continue to keep Momentum full of great fair trade products, but to further its mission and purpose in downtown Boulder and beyond," said Paul Culler. The couple is amazed at how rapidly the variety of fair trade products grow each day, and look forward to showcasing new handmade treasures at the Pearl Street location. "Each product represents an artisan with a story of hope and justice. We strongly believe that as fair trade becomes more accessible to everyone, we are winning the fight against global poverty."
The Culler family opened its first Fair Trade Winds store in Bar Harbor, Maine in 2007. Since then, they have opened stores in Fairfax, VA, Stony Brook, NY, Seattle, WA, Springfield, OH, and Jamestown, RI.
"The more we promote fair trade, the more artisans and farmers around the world are given the tools to invest time and money into their talents, land, families, communities, healthcare, social justice, and education," explains Culler.
All of the products at Fair Trade Winds and Momentum are handmade, fair trade, and often made from sustainable, recycled, and re-purposed materials, including jewelry, accessories, handmade toys and gifts for children, lamps, decor and wall art, home goods, kitchen, dining, and bath and body products.
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.
The stores are members of Green America and the Fair Trade Federation. For more information, please email info(at)ourmomentum(dot)com. Visit http://www.ourmomentum.com and http://www.fairtradewinds.net. Momentum is located at 1625 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO 80302.
