RREPP - Taking It To The Next Level In Football !

Well the next shipment of our ethically produced Fairtrade Certified Sports Balls is presently making its way down the east coast of Australia. In this new post Covid world where freighting by sea rather than air is going to become the norm for RREPP, we will now be organising our future orders around 6 weeks earlier to allow for the extra time frames to ship our products by sea. One of a number of business model adjustments we've made to help take RREPP to the next level over the coming years. And we are determined to do this without raising any of our prices. On the understanding that the last 12 months has been extremely hard on the budgets of so many of the businesses that we are so grateful to have as our clients. 

And speaking of taking it to the next level, on our immediate shipment that will be docking into Sydney mid month, there is a load of our newly developed Hi-Tech multi coloured Hybrid Match Soccer Balls. So with the Soccer season about to start in Australia, and for all the soccer fanatics in your family, why not grab one of these amazing footballs to start off the new season with. In our view, the Best & Fairest Soccer Balls on offer here in Australia. 

Take a look at the Specs of our Size 5 Ball in our online shop HERE . These are next level and will remain part of the RREPP collection for many years to come. Pre Orders taken for this upcoming shipment though have been strong. All Size 4's have already been sold out, yet we still have a small number of Size 5's and Size 3's left that haven't been preordered.

So order now in our online shop HERE . We've also just put in another new order, yet unfortunately they wont be landing on our shores for another 4 months. So grab some from our upcoming shipment arriving in 2 weeks while you can

School Uniform Purchasing That Comes With Purpose !

Most School P&C committees buy their School Uniforms from Suppliers who manufacture over in China. And the reason for this is that they are cheap ! Yet this doesn't mean great value for everyone unfortunately. Especially for the workers making our kids uniforms who are for the most part exposed to exploitive work practices. The problem is that when something is cheap, we as consumers tend not to ask the right questions of our suppliers and their supply chains. Especially in relation to where the cotton is grown and the massive amount of chemicals used. It's easier just to turn a blind eye. 

Did you know that Britain has recently taken a lead in this space, and is now seeking to block the import of goods suspected of being made using forced labour in China's Xinjiang province. Where up to 2 million Uyghur Muslims are being held in so called 're-education camps'. It is the latest international response to the alleged use of forced labour in the region which produces around 85% of China's cotton, and more than one fifth of Global supplies.

Foreign secretary Dominic Raab, outlining his proposals to MP's in the House of Commons, described human rights abuses in Xinjiang as 'harrowing' and said the UK had a 'moral duty to respond'. 

School Uniform manufacturing is not just about the end factory that does the final stitching. It is about the full array of very complex supply chains starting with the cotton farmers. Supply chains that for the most part lack independent auditing. The documentary 'The True Cost' tore down the curtain in regards to what has been going on behind the scenes in the garment industry for decades.Take a look at the trailer by clicking on the image below. We hope it may influence you asking a few extra questions to your supplier whenever you put in your next order of School Uniform Polo's !

  

And we are not saying the solution is an easy one. The vast majority of School uniform suppliers are not trading under the Fairtrade certification. And unless the cotton is being produced organicially, conventional cotton farming is one of the 'dirtiest' industries on the planet. With a high use of pesticides, high water consumption and unsustainable farming practices that degrades the environment.

Here at RREPP we don't have all the answers either. Yet we do have a perfect solution for one School uniform item that none of the mainstream School Uniform Suppliers in Australia are able to produce. And that's our 100% Organic & Fairtrade certified School Uniform Polo that is third party certified and organically produced and manufactured through every step of our uniquely sustainable supply chain. Our Organic GOT's certification means the environment is looked after as well as the health of our children with no toxic clothing dyes seeping into their skin. Plus our Fairtrade certification means our workers are looked after every step of the way. Which means they are able to work their way into a better life. Rather than being stuck in generational poverty for decades.

Is Your Soccer Team Kicking Off 2021 With A RREPP 12 Pack ?

Welcome to the New Year. Now that 2020 has been given a final red card and hopefully sent back to the sheds for good, we are now well and truly focussed on making up for the lost time that Covid-19 and lockdowns globally have created for RREPP. 

And our first piece of business for the year as mentioned in our last newsletter back in December, is getting as many Clubs and School Soccer Teams locking in orders for our new RREPP Soccer Ball 12 packs for training purposes in 2021. Our 12 packs can be ordered for any ball size, and will prove to be the best training balls your teams have ever trained with.

This is what you will be buying into:

1) Match quality ethically made RREPP soccer balls that will improve the skills of every player in your team in 2021 and beyond

2) Our 12 packs are made up of 12 of our New Fluro Hi Tech Hybrid Fairtrade certified Soccer balls, either in Size 5, Size 4 or Size 3

3) For every ball purchased, RREPP contributes back a percentage to the communities and families we help support.

4) Our 12 packs are normally $780.00 per pack ($65.00 per ball), yet we are now selling them for only $594.00 per pack ($49.50 per ball)

5) Our ordering deadline is 10th January for delivery in late March early April. So in time for the commencement of the new 2021 Soccer season.

RREPP Fairtrade Soccer Ball 12 Packs For Team Training Now On Sale for 2021

RREPP, as Australia's leading ethical sportsball supplier, is now taking orders for our new Soccer Ball 12 packs. Specifically created for teams wishing to train with not only the Best, yet also the Fairest soccer balls in the market place.

What we have done is put together a fantastic discounted rate for any teams wishing to purchase a 12 pack of our new Fairtrade certified Fluro Hybrid Match balls for training purposes. Our MATCH BALL 12 packs have been created due to so many coaches and players these days seeing the benefits of training with the same higher quality balls they use on match day. Our 12 packs would normally cost $780.00 ($65.00 per ball), yet we have discounted them down to $594.00 ($49.50 per ball) plus delivery. To encourage teams to switch from conventionally made soccer balls from overseas owned brands, to ethically made Fairtrade certified balls from an Australian owned brand that has social justice at the core of its mission. Our hi tech Hybrid balls can be viewed on our website HERE if you'd like to check out the specs.

RREPP’s Fairtrade sports balls are now our specialty product that we have put an immense amount of technical work and research into. To create something that is not only ethically produced, yet also high quality and suitable to players of all standards. And for all balls purchased, RREPP contributes 10% back into the communities we help support, and 5% back to our producer to help them with the costs of being Fairtrade certified and creating an ethical and safe work environment for their workers. Plus another 1.5% of all our sales is contributed back to Fairtrade Australia which goes towards supporting their wonderful initiatives in the Pacific region. So Teams will be buying into a business model which is specifically set up to help alleviate poverty worldwide.

So we are now taking 12 pack orders, with our cut off deadline date being 20th January 2021. This is to ensure the balls can be produced and delivered to all teams in time for when training starts in 2021 (beginning of April approx.). To place an order or for further enquiries, simply make contact with us direct at info@rrepp.com.au .

RREPP is Fairtrade certified, Social Traders certified and Australian owned.

Thanks, Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays

Well it's that time of year that we would like to say a very big thank you to everyone for your amazing support in 2020. From our perspective it has been especially heartening over the past couple of years seeing a number of Schools & Clubs taking up the Fairtrade Challenge on our sporting fields, by purchasing their sports balls from RREPP. Whether it be for kids gala days, or more elite National title events. With most conventional sports balls being produced cheaply within the hidden scourge of adult exploitation & child labour, every sporting club and school in Australia should be taking a stand and swapping to ethically produced Fairtrade certified. We hope to see more of you on board in 2021. Actions certainly speak louder than words !
So if your local school or sporting club that your kids attend would like to know more, I can be personally contacted for a chat at scott@rrepp.com.au . We also offer excellent corporate discounts for Schools and Sporting Clubs. You can check out our Fairtrade Match & International range HERE . And if there has been any year that has made us all sit back, take stock, and reassess what is important in our lives, it's been 2020. Very much looking forward to the clock ticking over past midnight on the 31st December !! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.
