Hummingbird Economic Model

native-boarder-35

Note that we are working with our local eco-friendly printers, remedy with heat-transfer technology that allows us to order idiosyncratically in small batches (no silk-screen set-up means print-runs can be relatively small).

The Hummingbird Economic Model is based on a core premise: Life-Honoring

We are solidly committed to using Fair Trade, this non-sweatshop, sustainable/organic fabric, cloths, sarongs and T-shirts; no ‘externalized cost’; kind to air, the water, the Earth & all living things.

We invite you to donate $50 to $100 for a Hummingbird item and to regard it as a Prayer garment for the Water.

Water Woman T-Shirt

New Dawn Woman T-Shirt

We have printed on T-shirts, on sarongs, and on a variety of ceremonial cloths. We have done print-runs on donated organic wovens & knits. We may only have small quantities of some things, and others, such as T-shirts, we can order in unlimited quantities (2-3 weeks lead time). Talk to us and tell us what you are looking for.. and quantities desired. We can give a special price upon request for T-shirt orders of 6 or more.

Custom Designed Sarong

We can always tell you the rock-bottom price on any item we have been drawn to produce. That price is always an option for you.
Yet know that every effort is taken in considering the artwork and materials, to create items that align with our ecological commitment and vision. Please consider a generous gift beyond the price of the item.

We as Hummingbird Women are committed, as far as humanly possible, to “no externalized cost” on any finished garments that passes through our hands. We are emerging from an era where the price for a garment has been at the cost of health & well-being of growers & pickers and mill workers. In addition, fiber production literally costing the Earth…, the Water, The Air; conventional cotton ranks as one of THE most toxic mono-crops on the planet.

All this to say; that we do not deal in ‘bargain-basement’ T-shirts or bottom-dollar anything(!) and the prices we pay do of course reflect that.

Pesticide residues run-off into our waterways. That is unacceptable Now and for our legacy. That is why the Hummingbird Economic Model means business.  In the words of the Water Institute {‘Basins of Relations’}, we are acting primarily to: “ensure that we and all species enjoy pure and ample water for generations to come.”

Supporter donations always gladly accepted: money is no obstacle..
AND;
$100 goes a long way!

Hummingbird Women know how to get things done. The money comes, sometimes in breathtaking ways. A portion of our funds are generated through our on-going hummingbird design/production.

Above all, we recognize this abiding truth: “The water cycle and the life cycle are one.” {Cousteau}

Supporter donations always gladly accepted: money is no obstacle..
AND; $100 goes a long way!

Hummingbird Women know how to get things done. The money comes, sometimes in breathtaking ways. A goodly portion of our funds are generated through our on-going hummingbird design/production. As well; we have had the breathtaking delight of donors sweep in like angels for both over-arching and specific purposes.

Just as our hummingbird; flying every which way including backwards and sideways, seems to defy physics, so do we apprentices grow evermore deft & adept at employing levity, most especially where the gravity of the circumstances would weigh too heavily upon us!

Hummingbird Economic Indicators then are  inextricably linked to quality of life barometers:

Take the
Bioneers edict; “It’s all Alive…It’s All Connected,..It’s All Intelligent…It’s All Relatives“, and combine it with the original Bhutanese concept of ‘Gross National Happiness’ – GNH (which four pillars are  sustainable development, cultural integrity, ecosystem conservation, and good governance), extrapolated out to Planet-Wide…

And there you have Hummingbird Economics in a nutshell!
