Park(ing) Space Event:

Friday, June 12th 10-2pm

In the spirit of Bike Month’s Park(ing) Spaces Day, Momentum is creating an outdoor haven for our supporters to enjoy chair massages, birthday cake and utter relaxation...

Momentum is transforming the parking space in front of our shop into a playful community park. Enjoy a free chair massage, kick off your shoes and lounge in a beach chair while feasting on Momentum’s birthday cake. Stay for as long as you wish- Momentum is paying for the parking!

Parking Space Park DayWhat's the point?Parking Space 		Park Day

Park(ing) Space Day is a time to let our imaginations run wild as we experience a world with fewer parking spaces and more community spaces. Park(ing) Space Parks raise awareness about the trade-off between space for cars vs. space for humans.

Bike Month Galimoto

Walk and Bike Month

In honor of Bike Month and in recognition of the ingenious Kenyan children who create their own Galimotos (bicycle rider push toys), Momentum staff took on the challenge of creating our own LIFE SIZED Galimoto.


We teamed up with Community Cycles‘s director Josh Brown, who dove head first into the project and feet first into the dumpster and sent us this amusing email, “I've spent the afternoon at the shop digging through the overflowing dumpster and pulling out parts, engineering, and scratching my head. The parts I need are now strapped to my bike and ready to be assembled…can't wait. I love stuff like this.”

The unveiling of our LIFE SIZED Galimoto, constructed from Community Cycle’s salvaged materials, will take place on June 12th as part of our Park(ing) Space Event. We are also holding a "Name the Galimoto Contest" and the lucky winner will receive a $50 Momentum Gift Certificate.

Happy Birthday Momentum

Momentum is turning 2 years old this June! On June 12th, we will also be celebrating with birthday cake and a special one day only coupon for 15% OFF ANY ITEM – just mention this newsletter and you will receive the Momentum birthday discount. This special one day only discount is in addition to our Birthday Month coupon (available at the beginning of this newsletter) which can be used anytime during the month of June. Thank you Boulder for two wonderful years, the momentum is growing!

Green Festival

In May, Momentum joined other eco-friendly businesses at the first annual Denver Green Festival, which attracted over 21,500 eco-enthusiasts. Our participation in the Green Festival not only helped us connect with socially and environmentally responsible shoppers in our community but also helped us connect to a much broader audience through Momentum’s first two TV debuts. Momentum was featured on Fox News and on CBS’s Green Living Program.

Excerpt from Women’s Magazine, by Kate Nelson

World Fair Trade Day Event

In recognition of Word Fair Trade Day, Momentum and Mother’s Acting Up (MAU) hosted Peruvian artisans Evangelina Pizarro and Ayde Riveros. These resourceful women left Peru, for the first time, to share their personal accounts of how Fair Trade standards have provided their families with economic stability and their communities with social stability. Their visit was filled with meaningful cross-cultural exchanges and lovely surprises, including, Lissette Perez’s unexpected appearance in traditional Cusco attire (see photo below). After visiting Momentum, the artisans continued their cross country tour of Fair Trade stores.


A Fair Trade Wine and Chocolate reception, in recognition of Mother's Day, followed the artisan visit and provided the perfect ending to a phenomenal World Fair Trade Day. In honor of the world's Mother's, Momentum donated $250 from the day’s sales to Mother’s Acting Up (MAU).

Earth Day at Momentum- 92 Trees Planted!
