Plowshare was the first brick and mortar Fair Trade store in Wisconsin, and is currently the only one left in Southeast Wisconsin!
Plowshare is a non-profit center with a mission to “Create a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world through socially responsible shopping and transformative educational experiences.”
Our vision is to “Make peace relevant to the world around” Through three areas of action:
– work toward global economic justice by providing a marketplace for artisans in developing countries to ensure a fair wage for their work
– work toward global peace by being an educational resource for the community through educational programs
– work toward personal and global peace by providing a forum for members of the community to discuss current local and global issues.
