Sustainable School Uniform Awarded Top Of Class

The past week has been a pretty big one for the RREPP brand. Firstly it was Fashion Revolution week which marked a week of campaigns that gave consumers the opportunity to question their favourite brands about their supply chain transparency. RREPP has a predominantly Corporate focus, so in line with our own business objectives, we would love to see our larger Corporate organisations and Schools asking their preferred clothing suppliers the simple question of 'WHO IS MAKING THEIR CLOTHES'.

Millions of people make the Uniforms our kids wear to School everyday, yet many of these people continue to live in extreme poverty. Most suppliers simply look to buy cheap from overseas producers in China, Indonesia and Bangladesh, and then look the other way. They have little knowledge about their supply chains, have scant regard for the people and their families who are making their products, and have minimal insights about the environmental impacts their garment manufacturers are having on the planet.

Last week Baptist World Aid Australia also released their annual Ethical Fashion Report, and for the third year running, out of over 400 Australian Brands, RREPP was ranked in the top categories with an 'A' grade ranking for ethics and sustainability. All our Corporate & School Uniform Polo's and Tees are not only internationally recognised Fairtrade certified, they are also 100% organic certified. Organic cotton turns one of the dirtiest industries in the world into one of the cleanest. By using organic cotton in our garments, we are achieving a 46% reduction in global warming potential, a 70% reduction in soil acidification, a 26% reduction in soil erosion, a 62% reduction in non renewable energy demand, and an amazing 91% reduction in blue water consumption.

Less than 0.7% of the worlds cotton production is organically grown, with this percentage even less when combined with RREPP's socially aligned Fairtrade certification. So if your Organisation or School would like to start dressing your employees or students in a more sustainable Uniform Polo or Tee that has significant social and environmental benefits, then why not pop us an email to find out more. We have just added a new Junior Long Sleeve Polo and Ladies Polo into our range as well.

WE KNOW WHO MAKES OUR CLOTHES

5 YEARS OF VISION, VALUES & VOICE

RREPP turns 5 years old as a business this month, and it has made us sit back and reflect on our journey thus far.

From a mere seed thought, the business has become a leader in offering Schools, Sporting Clubs and Businesses an ethical alternative to their Sports Ball, Uniform Polo and Corporate T-shirt purchasing. Purchases that also give back to communities in need, which right from the start has always been a key aspect of RREPP's unique business model.

From the early days of building supply chain integrity, to working tirelessly on improving product quality through endless sampling and testing, RREPP has suddenly found itself at the forefront of the social justice space here in Australia.

From supplying our lead in Fairtrade match balls for junior gala days right through to our International Phoenix Pro football being used as the ball of choice for Christian Football's National Titles every year.

And we can't thank enough our 3 trail blazing schools, Lane Cove West Primary, Rozelle and Turner School in the ACT, whose Principals and P&C Committees made the decision to step away from questionable supply chains, and start purchasing RREPP's 100% Organic & Fairtrade certified School Uniform Polo's, with repeat orders and new enquiry getting stronger by the day.

When you do the right thing as a business, for the right reasons, and with the right people, then anything becomes possible. Thinking globally whilst acting locally is what our client base is all about. A client base who are not just taking action in their own communities and cities, they are also taking into consideration the health of the entire planet and the people living on it.

Yet don't just believe us. Have a read of some of our testimonials, and let us know if your School, Sporting Club or Business would also like to get involved, and join us in creating meaningful change in our world 

Thanks for your support, and here's to another 5 years of innovation, sustainability, strong partnerships and success.

DARING TO LEAD !

Taking on a Leadership role is never easy. It generally means changing the status quo, exposing some untold truths, and making people feel uncomfortable. Yet in 2017 RREPP successfully turned one of the most exploitive and dirtiest industries in the world, into one of the fairest socially and cleanest environmentally.

The cotton supply chain RREPP supports is 100% Fairtrade and Organic certified. It includes third party auditing bodies to ensure standards are adhered to, combined with ISO 9001 and OE 100 quality certifications. So what we have created as a business is a supply chain unlike any other, being both socially responsible and sustainable in a mainstream industry that embraces neither of these two qualities. 

Yet the iceing on the cake comes from the Organic side of our business. 99.3% of the worlds cotton is grown conventionally. What this means is that pesticides and other toxic chemicals are used on mass in the production of the cotton garments that all of us wear everyday. Just as alarming is the fact that to produce just one single t-shirt, 2700 litres of water is required which is an ongoing ticking time bomb environmentally, especially when water has become such a precious commodity..

So RREPP is one of the 0.7% of businesses that is growing their cotton organically, and the environmental statistics achieved from this are pretty impressive:

1) 91% reduced blue water consumption
2) 70% reduced acidification potential
3) 62% reduced non renewable energy demand
4) 46% reduced global warming potential
5) 26% reduced eutrophication potential from soil erosion 

So what will it be for your School or Business in 2018 - RREPP's Inconvenient Truth, or the Garment Industries Reassuring Lie ? The clock is ticking !
