New FairTrade Jewelry For Summer 2021! - FairTrade Fashion Forward

Posted on June 02, 2021 by Brock Kirwin | 0 comments

Come see some of our fresh fair-trade jewelry and from our new summer collection!

An orange marble mango wood bangle
From our new line of ethical jewelry, welcome the new Jumbo Marble Bangle! Made from organic mango wood harvested and produced by local female artisans in Thailand, this bangle is everything it means to be sustainably chic. All the bangles sold on FairTradeFashionForward.com are purchased from fair trade co-ops to ensure we are always providing our customers with sustainable products.

Above you can see our new Jumbo Marble Emerald Bangle. Inspired by the lush greenery of Thailand and our mission to support sustainable fashion in Canada, this bangle is a great summer accessory that can make you feel as good as you’ll look with it. All our bangles are vegan and made from organic mango wood, which means you’ll be adding some sustainably sourced jewelry to your collection next time you get a package from FairTrade Fashion Forward.



We decided to start selling our new Golden Jumbo Marble Bangle since it reminded us of the warm sunsets of Thailand. Each of our new bracelets is a breeze to slide on and off thanks to the wrist cut-out and since they come in three comfortable sizes, they’ll fit any size or style! 

 If you like what you see here, consider making FairTrade Fashion Forward your one-stop shop for eco-friendly, ethical jewelry this summer!

Roasted Butter Nut Squash

Posted on March 08, 2013 by Nui Esser | 0 comments


We want our blog to be a place where we can share our green living with you. We hope that you’ll journey with us as we open our doors and welcome you into our home for a personal touch of how we are living green. So sit back, relax and enjoy!

Don't you just love cooking in season? It's pretty much like fashion - either you're in or you're out. Lucky for us, we managed to store in tip top shape a butternut squash that was generously given to us by our organic farmer last fall.

Butternut squash is a fruit that you can roast, toast, puréed and believe me, you can do a lot more. And for supper, we're in a mood for something roasted.


1 medium size butter nut squash

1 - 2 cloves of garlic

2 - 3 sprigs of fresh thyme

1 - 2 TBS of olive oil

Cherry tomatoes - halved

Salt and pepper to taste

Grated cheese (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Clean and cut squash in half - lengthwise and remove the seeds

3. Crush garlic and thyme together and mix with olive oil

4. Brush the mixture over the squash and place some in the middle of the squash together with tomatoes

5. Roast the squash for 30 - 45 mins, until flesh is fork-tender

6. If use cheese, sprinkle over the squash and roast for another 10 mins

7. Sprinkle with black pepper and salt


- Add some nuts to the mixture or sprinkle over with the cheese

- Sprinkle maple syrup all over the squash for a slightly sweet taste

Let us know what you think! :)

Give Your Mom a Piece of Mother Nature this Mother’s Day

Posted on November 21, 2012 by Bee Glorious | 1 comment


What I love about spring is that it is a season to revere everything maternal. Mother Nature reawakens, the earth gets a day of joyous celebration and mothers from all over the world are given well-deserved tributes. 
Treat your eco-mom to the great outdoors! There’s nothing more glorious than mother nature’s beauty and nothing more relaxing than reveling in it. Take her for a nature hike through the woods. Play a guessing game – have fun identifying the trees and wild flowers you come across. Inhale the heady scent of the flowers and thank Mother Nature for her bounty.

No woods near your home? Never mind. Take your mother for a picnic. Celebrate spring by drinking in the beauty of the green grass and the blue sky while letting the breeze run its fingers through your hair. Use only natural, eco-friendly products, like picnic mats made from sedge grass which are durable as well as flexible. Please your mom as well as Mother Nature by using banana leaf hats to protect yourselves from the sun.

If there’s a beach nearby, have a fun time with your mom at the beach, swimming and sunbathing, and celebrating the glorious revival of Mother Earth in springtime. Realize how much we are all Mother Nature’s children, and how much we have to give back to her.

Green isn’t just a movement anymore - it’s a way of life. Think about using environmentally friendly products in your day-to-day life. Throw out those plastic, vinyl and rexine products. Bags, jewelry and other natural products made from bamboo, coconut shells, etc., not only let you breathe easy, but cause less pollution too.

Convince your mom about the importance of giving your energy-guzzling computers, televisions, tablets and laptops a day off while you are out celebrating Mother’s Day. Thinking about reducing your carbon footprint, even if only for a day, will make both of you feel good.

Volunteer to decorate your house with household items that scream au naturel! Be more environment-friendly by letting in natural air, using wooden furniture and fixtures and decorating the rooms with indoor plants. 

Finally, pamper her with nature’s formula for skin and hair care. Products made from natural and organic ingredients have a way of keeping skin refreshingly smooth and making hair vibrantly fragrant.

There’s no limit to what you can do with your mom to celebrate a green Mother’s Day this year. Be creative with your plans but most important of all, be earth-friendly!
