Sports Balls That Shine A Light On Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility isn't just what big business should be incorporating into their business models. It should also extend well beyond into Smaller Enterprises, Trades, Local Businesses, Universities, Schools and Sporting Clubs. And big budgets are in no way a prerequisite for getting involved and making a difference.

Ethical purchasing is one of the easiest ways for any organisation to start making a positive impact. As most people know who receive our newsletters, RREPP for a number of years has been waving the Fairtrade banner in regards to sports ball production. Of the 10's of thousands of sports ball producers world wide in countries such as China, India, Vietnam, Pakistan and others, we work with one of only four Fairtrade certified manufacturers in existence.

What most of us do not realise is that the vast majority of sports balls globally are made under exploitive conditions. And yes child labour continues to remain a major issue in this industry. It is just hidden away as an unspoken truth, and 'white washed' under the glitz of clever marketing and convincing 'feel good' branding initiatives. No one ever talks about their supply chains and the people making their products, because it never aligns the image wishing to be portrayed ! 

No one talks about the working conditions of sports ball stitchers, wages, gender equality, safety, the ability of workers to put food on the table or send their kids to school. The basic necessities that we all take for granted. 

RREPP over the past 5 years has put these things at the forefront of our business model and we are now producing the Fairest, most ethically made, highest quality sports balls in the whole of Australia bar none. As well as giving back to the communities we support via every purchase made. 

We understand that changing suppliers is never easy. Yet supporting a business like RREPP that supports ethical trade which then helps empower entire communities, will take your purchasing power as a School or University or Sporting Club to a whole new level. Plus it is something that your own local communities will be able to embrace and be proud of. And all of this simply achieved through your regular sports ball purchasing policies. 

RREPP is now putting together our second ordering cycle for Schools and Sporting Clubs throughout Australia, for delivery in time for pre season training in 2019. The deadline for putting in an order is 15th NOVEMBER.  And no matter how big or small your order is, we will be offering a 20% DISCOUNT off our regular retail prices to EVERYONE who wants to get involved. Check out our range of Fairtrade Certified Match Balls HERE . We have you covered across 6 different sporting codes.   

And we are not just selling you a sports ball, we are selling you JUSTICE, and what you will be buying into is someone else's FREEDOM. All packaged up into a humble Sports Ball that your players will feel proud to be playing with. So why not meet with your decision makers NOW and consider making the SWAP to Fairtrade in 2019  - coz the planet's watching !
