Creating Change Through Partnerships & Collaborations.

Meaningful Collaborations & Partnerships are at the core of the RREPP business model. We love teaming up with 'Walkers' not 'Talkers'. Larger Businesses & Socially Conscious Organisations, Schools & Sporting Clubs who are motivated about making changes to their purchasing policies, as a practical way of making an impact. Like us, they are passionate about looking after people and planet on a global level.

Action will override Talk everyday of the week. Purely because action is the true catayst towards change. We've been privileged, even at this early stage of our business evolution, to work and collaborate with some fantastic organisations. From producing custom made branded Organic and Fairtrade certified T-shirts for one of Australia's largest businesses, who have revenues of over $3 billion annually and over 20,000 employees.To supplying our high quality Match and International Match quality Fairtrade Certified sports balls to State Wide Sporting Associations, Local Clubs and Teams, as well as High Schools & Primary Schools.To working with a number of socially conscious Primary Schools and P&C Associations, to produce the most environmentally and ethically responsible Organic and Fairtrade School Uniform Polos found anywhere in Australia. 

Our supply chains are transparent, and for every item a business or organisation purchases from RREPP, a percentage is given back to support social initiatives aligned to education, health and other lifestyle projects for communities in need. It's a unique business model that we have created that covers all the bases. High quality longer lasting products, ethically made, that also give back and help create some of the changes needed towards poverty alleviation. Such as payment of Living Wages to workers, fair and safe working conditions, and gender equality policies.

Thanks to those that have joined us on our journey so far, and to those new partnerships and collaborations that are getting ready to jump on board - coz the planet's watching.

Ethical School Uniform Polo's That Support PEOPLE & PLANET !

So your School has fantastic sustainability programs with a focus on people and planet. Yet have you ever thought about how your School's Uniform Polo's are being made ? 

If not then it's time to talk dirty ! With over 5 million conventionally made School Uniform Polo's being worn in over 10,000 Australian Schools every year, the absolute vast majority of these uniforms are being produced under a 'fast fashion' business model. A model that supports one of the biggest polluting industries in the world, and one of the most exploitive from a worker's perspective. 

It's not something our major School uniform suppliers like talking about, as none throughout the whole of Australia have the Organic and Fairtrade supply chains and ethical production models in place that RREPP has developed over the past 6 years since launching. We've put PEOPLE and PLANET first, with the outcomes being a clean and ethical product that can be worn with a clear conscience.

So is Ethical fund raising through your P&C run Uniform Shops too left field. Or something worth thinking about to add in with future sustainability initiatives ? We would love to hear your thoughts.

"Scott from RREPP supplied our school with 100% Organic & Fairtrade certified cotton sport polos. We have been so impressed not only with the fabulous quality and softness of the material, but also the meticulous detail with which Scott replicated our school logo and colours. The service he provided was very professional and he shows a dedication and passion for his products that is inspiring.

I would recommend every school give their children the chance to wear a polo that is made of natural fibre and non toxic dyes and most importantly manufactured by fairly compensated workers."

RREPP's Fairtrade Sports Balls - Conquering Exploitation !

It's an uncomfortable topic to talk about. Yet child labour and adult exploitation, even today, remains a scourge on the sports ball manufacturing industry worldwide. And even though reports through the media surface occassionally exposing the industry for what it is, in a world full of injustices, the issue generally gets swept under the carpet as community uproar subsides back into complacency. 

Yet for RREPP, conquering exploitation will always remain front and centre within our business objectives. We live in a very lucky country, and even though it's probably not a question Schools and Sporting Clubs ask themselves very often, perhaps the discussion of ethical purchasing should be a hotter topic than what it presently is. 

Sport is something that we tell our kids is about fairness. It's something that whatever the differences are between communities and cultures across the world, the sporting field is a place where everyone is equal. It's a shame that this Fairness and Equality doesn't extend to the people, their families and communities in far away places who make the equipment we all love playing with.

So if you want your students or players enjoying sport with all its wonderful core values intact, why not also ensure it's not at the cost of someones elses freedom or basic rights. You can do this by purchasing Fairtrade certified Match quality sports balls from RREPP, where a percentage of every purchase also goes back to communities in need. 

So if you would like to know more about how to get involved, then simply contact Scott at scott@rrepp.com.au. And ask about our 20% discounts for larger orders, plus our FREE ball branding offer for Schools and Sporting Clubs wanting to professionally add their logos. A great social justice initiative your Sponsors may even like to get involved in - coz the planet's watching !

7 Astonishing Facts On How Fast Fashion Is Harming The Environment

There are very few people out there that are aware of just how damaging the fast fashion industry is on our planet.

Take a look at the below video produced by the World Economic Forum (make sure you have the volume turned on). Across decades of madness we have moved away from natural fibres and naively embraced synthetics and blends that are toxic on our planet during production, during use, and of course when we throw these items away into the land fill where they fail to degrade. We've developed an insatiable appetite for buyng cheap, only to see these items discarded in less than 12 months due to poor workmanship. And then there is the excessive abuse of our precious water resources during production, and the massive use of chemicals that negatively affect both the land, worker's health and our own health. 

Even within our School system here in Australia, over 5 million synthetic, chemically infused school uniform polos are being worn by our kids across 10,000 schools every day. They are generally poor quality, produced cheaply in places like China, Indonesia & Bangladesh, and supplied by well known School Uniform brands who give nil consideration to the environment, or workers rights for that matter.

In contrast, here are 7 astonishing facts on how RREPP turns one of the dirtiest industries, both socially and environmentally, into one of the cleanest. Our Organic & Fairtrade certified supply chain :

1) Reduces land and water acidification by 70%
2) Reduces Global Warming by 46%
3) Reduces blue water consumption by 91%
4) Reduces soil erosion by 26%
5) Reduces non renewable energy demand by 62%
6) Uses nil toxic chemicals and nil GMO cotton seeds
7) Supports gender equality, fair pay and safe working conditions in what is normally a highly exploitive industry that sustains poverty rather than alleviating it.

We clearly need more transparency so our fashion choices can be more informed. Especially when it comes to Schools and larger Corporations purchasing policies. Even something as small as changing your School's uniform polo to 100% Organic & Fairtrade cotton will collectively have a significant impact both socially and environmentally. Fundraising for your School through P&C run uniform shops, whilst looking after people and planet, doesn't have to be mutually exclusive !
