A SPECIAL ETHICAL OFFER FOR BUSINESSES ON WORLD DAY AGAINST CHILD LABOUR

A SPECIAL ETHICAL OFFER FOR BUSINESSES ON WORLD DAY AGAINST CHILD LABOUR

A recently released report by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and UNICEF shows that the number of children in child labour has risen to 160 million worldwide. This is the first time that child labour numbers have increased in over 20 years.

It’s a massive backward step. Especially as today is World Day Against Child Labour!

Sadly, child and exploitive adult labour is all around us. Deeply hidden away in the tens of thousands of supply chains worldwide. And it’s ironic that many of the western businesses that have thrived during the pandemic, especially online retailers, are generally the ones using supply chains that are highly questionable. Supply chains in developing countries that have deteriorated even further ethically over the past 12 months where workers and their families have become more vulnerable and poverty stricken due to Covid-19.

Big Western organisations can ‘Green Wash’ all they like with their savvy marketing to lead consumers astray, yet these are the facts. A great example of big business Green Washing is the number of businesses that have given themselves a pat on the back for uploading their Modern Slavery Statements to the Australian Governments Online Register. Yet words are not the same as action. And setting 10 / 20 / 30 year deadlines for tidying up horribly exploitive, poverty driven supply chains in our view is a cop out and all part of the green washing process. RREPP is presently putting together our own Modern Slavery Statement. Yet the big distinction between us and others is that we are already doing what others are ‘proposing’ to do in 20 - 30 years’ time. If big companies are taking action now to improve the ethics of their supply chains, why is child labour in just as worse a state as it was 20 years ago ?    

Unfortunately, as consumers, our constant demand for cheap doesn’t help matters. It's often why ethical businesses struggle so much. Producing a sustainable high-quality product from ethical supply chains of course costs a little more. The paradox though is that people often find themselves buying two cheap poorly made unethical products that fall apart quickly, when for the same price they could have bought one ethically made higher quality product, that also helps the more vulnerable of our global citizens work their way out of poverty. Such a purchasing philosophy is also less damaging on the environment. Less will always be more when it comes to ethical purchasing & sustainability.

A SPECIAL ETHICAL OFFER FOR BUSINESSES ON WORLD DAY AGAINST CHILD LABOUR

RREPP as a social enterprise creates 100% Organic and Fairtrade certified Tee’s and School Uniform Polo’s. Our quality ring spun organic cotton Tee’s are normally $39.00 each. Yet until the 20th June we are going to be offering businesses a 2 FOR 1 offer. Effectively making the cost of buying one of our Tee’s just $19.50.  So for every T-shirt you buy from us before the 20th June, we will give you another one FREE OF CHARGE.

This may suit a Business that has an event coming up over the next 12 months. Or perhaps a Business needing merchandise gifts for delegates at an upcoming conference. A café owner liking the idea of their staff wearing something sustainable and ethical with their company logo screen printed on the Tee. Or it could be a great ethical end of financial year gift for some of your clients.

This is your chance to buy ethical, and for a price that won’t break your budget. We only have approx 400 Tee’s in stock at the moment to giveaway at this 2 for 1 $19.50 price tag.

So drop me a line if you are interested at [email protected].  The deadline is 20th June.

Christian Football Victoria Making Their Choice & Raising Their Voice

Welcome again to our newsletter as we continue to shine a light on some of our amazing Corporate clients whose purchasing choices are making a difference in the world. The Victorian Churches Football Association is a not-for-profit, volunteer run organisation that has been running soccer competitions since 1983, and is the Victorian Branch of Christian Football Federation Australia. A wonderful community based organisation who every year creates friendships between players, officials, and supporters through the uniting world game which is soccer.

The VCFA have been using RREPP's ethically made Fairtrade certified Match and International Match Soccer Balls for over 5 years. 200+ teams throughout Victoria every weekend making their Choice their Voice through the ethical purchasing policies of their Association. Below are a couple of testimonials from the VCFA and also their governing National body the CFFA:  

"We chose to use RREPP's Fairtrade match balls because not only are they high-quality, they are also highly empowering. We are well aware that purchasing Fairtrade certified products can assist in reducing poverty, encourage environmentally friendly production methods, and safeguard humane working conditions. All of which are important to us as a Christian Organisation. We are proud to support small businesses like RREPP who are trying to change the world, one soccer ball at a time."

Nicola Westwood - General Manager - Victorian Churches Football Association (VCFA)

"We've discussed with our elite players about their thoughts on RREPP's Phoenix Pro ball, and watched them move it around. Every player that we spoke with said similarly - the ball is outstanding. It holds shape, responds equally well in both hot and cold temperatures and has a controllable flight which eliminates unexpected and unwanted loss of direction often found in other top balls. Players want to feel confident that when they hit the ball correctly it will respond to the touch so that delivery in patterns of play can be precise. Elite players spend hundreds of hours developing technique so that execution is first-rate when it counts. They need the ball they're working with to be at the same standard of excellence, and in the RREPP Phoenix Pro, we are confident we have such a ball."


Matt Jorgensen - National Director of Coaching Christian Football Federation Australia

So thanks again team. Your support and the work you do at a community level from the grass roots up, is truly inspiring. 

And if your School or Sporting Club would like to step away from convention and start backing your Corporate Social Responsibility Statements through your sportsball purchasing, then don't hesistate to make contact with us at [email protected] Throughout August and September is when we will be starting to compile orders for Schools and Clubs for 2022 deliveries. And for larger orders we can professionally print your School, Club or Sponsors logo onto every ball.

South Aussie Soccer Club Breaks Into The Fairtrade Champions League

Welcome to our monthly newsletter update for May 2021.

It's always so inspiring when a new School or Sporting Club reaches out to us and says they want their players playing with ethically made RREPP Fairtrade certified sports balls. Salisbury East Junior Soccer Club in South Australia is the latest addition to our growing family of socially conscious clubs and schools making a difference through their actions rather than their words. Below is from Rachel Griffin, a spokesperson from the Club: 

"The Salisbury East Junior Soccer Club is based in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia. We are a relatively small club, averaging 7 teams each season, and try to keep registration fees low to enable any child to play. We are part of the Elizabeth and Districts Junior Soccer Association, affiliated to the South Australian Amateur Soccer League Inc. The ages of our players currently range from 5 through to 12, although this varies year to year.

In 2020, despite an interrupted season and a lot of uncertainty, the committee began to discuss the need for equipment for the following year. Part of this was the need for some replacement balls. As someone strongly interested in Fairtrade items and buying ethically where possible, I raised RREPP’s soccer balls as a choice for replacing our tired and worn out ones. We already had our own family RREPP soccer ball (kept on top of the fridge away from our dog when not in use!). So I knew that the quality and most importantly the ethics of the company were excellent. This was met with some resistance due to the higher price compared to our normal choice. However, with some good discussions over a number of months and a successful grant application, the committee voted in favour of buying enough Fairtrade balls to meet the needs of three of our teams. While this is just a start to moving all our balls to Fairtrade, it makes me smile every time we train, knowing that we’ve adjusted our budget to the benefit of others."

So from RREPP to Salisbury East Junior Soccer Club, welcome to the Fairtrade Champions League. It's great to have you on board.
