The Cleanest Uniform In Australia !

Every now and then RREPP collaborates on a social justice campaign with another organisation that we just know is going to have massive impact. Not just on the workers, their families and the communities we help support overseas, yet also our Schools Nationally who by coming on board and supporting, are making a clear and conscious decision to support social justice through purchasing a fantastic Fairtrade product. 

RREPP has recently joined forces with our governing body Fairtrade Australia New Zealand via an ongoing campaign drive to encourage Schools throughout Australia to switch to purchasing School Uniform Polo's made from Fairtrade Cotton. It really is such a simple thing to do and for very little extra cost. In fact for about the same price as a cup of coffee that we all might buy after dropping the kids to school, we could be dressing our next generation in RREPP's high quality, environmentally and socially conscious Organic and Fairtrade certified polo's.

So no matter how dirty your kids school uniform might get, if it is made with Organic & Fairtrade Cotton, it will always be clean from child labour and the unethical practices that continue to plague the garment manufacturing industry even today. Check out the campaign video below (33 secs), and RREPP's own campaign video (1 min 31 secs) and let us know what you think. Switching to Fairtrade today WILL help provide kids everywhere with the childhood and education they deserve. 

We didn't invent the School Uniform Polo, but we sure have made it better ! If you'd like to find out more, simply contact Scott Goddard at info@rrepp.com.au  - coz the planet's watching !

For The Love Of Sport

It's been another exciting year for the emerging RREPP business as we continue to break into the highly competitive sports ball field, whether it be with Schools or Sporting Clubs. Yet with RREPP there is one very distinct difference between us and our more high profile competitors, and that is that all of our sports balls are 100% Fairtrade Certified, with our highest tier International Phoenix Pro Football symbolising exactly what we are all about. An innovative rising business that not only embraces high professional standards, it also strives to bring social justice awareness onto the sporting fields of Australia, from mini league gala days to professional Premier League competitions. 

This comment from the National Director of Coaching at Christian Football Federation Australia - '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.' 

Quality, Passion, Heart and Ethics - this is what RREPP is all about. So if your School or Sporting Club would like to know more about how easy it is to Swap to ethically made Fairtrade Certified Sports Balls, then simply drop us an email at info@rrepp.com.au. Our next ordering deadline for February 2018 delivery is coming up quickly on the 15th November.

RREPP's Phoenix Soars At National Titles

For the third year running, RREPP's top tier International Phoenix Pro Fairtrade Soccer Ball was chosen as the ball of choice for Christian Football Australia's National Titles. The championships were held in Sydney over 4 days in September at the Sydney Academy of Sport & Recreation. Over 850 players, the best of the best, playing with the Best & Fairest Soccer Ball in Australia !

RREPP has been supplying the Match Balls for Christian Football Australia, Victorian Churches Football Association and the Central Coast Christian Football Association for a number of years now, and we can't thank them enough for their committment in supporting Social Justice and Fairtrade, both on and off the field.

And thanks to Matt Jorgensen, the National Director of Coaching for CFA, for this wonderful testimonial:

"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."


RREPP is now taking orders for early 2018 deliveries across our full range of 6 different sports ball codes. So come and join us and help make a difference in the world by supporting Fairtrade. Note: for January 2018 deliveries we require all orders to be locked in by 15th October.

True Sportsmanship That Starts With The Ball

We talk about sport being the great equaliser. Something that brings people together both locally and globally, no matter what your race, gender, culture, religious or spiritual beliefs. Sport simply draws communities onto some sort of common ground, with fairness, sportsmanship, heart and passion being frequently used terms no matter what the game you play. Yet there is a forgotten side that we all take for granted mainly due to the fact that it is the only aspect of the game that we are NOT spectators to. And that is the manufacturing of the actual SPORTS BALL.  

FACT: The sports ball manufacturing industry is one of the most exploitive globally. Did you know that even just for Soccer, a small town in Pakistan known as the soccer ball making capital of world, manufactures 40 million soccer balls a year and this grows to 60 million every 4 years when the World Cup is played. Quite incredible numbers really, and this is just for one sporting code made in one very small part of the world ! It's a massive industry.

FACTChild Labour has been a part of this industry for decades, and even today it is still proving almost impossible to control.

FACT: Out of the 10's of thousands of businesses worldwide producing sports balls, there is presently only 3 or 4 that have been Fairtrade certified. This means a guarrantee of no child labour, with workers being paid fairly under fair and safe working conditions. 

RREPP is presently one of only a small handful of sports ball suppliers worldwide that is Fairtrade certified, and added to this, for every single purchase we make from our manufacturer, we give back 15% to the business and their local communities which helps financially support a vast array of social initiatives centred on things like education and health. Fairtrade is a wonderful, structured, third party auditing system that protects the people who work so hard to produce the sports balls we all love to play with everyday. From mini league, to School competitions, right through to the World Cup. 

So to every individual, School and Sporting Club, have a think about becoming a Great Sport by supporting Fairtrade. RREPP has you covered across 6 different sporting codes from Soccer, Futsal, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Netball, as well as our newly introduced TOUCH 'Freedom' and 'Justice' Match Balls, and we are now taking orders throughout September and October for early 2018 deliveries. Isn't it time we made Fairtrade in Sport our No1 GOAL?
