RREPP Fairtrade Soccer Ball 12 Packs For Team Training Now On Sale for 2021

RREPP, as Australia's leading ethical sportsball supplier, is now taking orders for our new Soccer Ball 12 packs. Specifically created for teams wishing to train with not only the Best, yet also the Fairest soccer balls in the market place.

What we have done is put together a fantastic discounted rate for any teams wishing to purchase a 12 pack of our new Fairtrade certified Fluro Hybrid Match balls for training purposes. Our MATCH BALL 12 packs have been created due to so many coaches and players these days seeing the benefits of training with the same higher quality balls they use on match day. Our 12 packs would normally cost $780.00 ($65.00 per ball), yet we have discounted them down to $594.00 ($49.50 per ball) plus delivery. To encourage teams to switch from conventionally made soccer balls from overseas owned brands, to ethically made Fairtrade certified balls from an Australian owned brand that has social justice at the core of its mission. Our hi tech Hybrid balls can be viewed on our website HERE if you'd like to check out the specs.

RREPP’s Fairtrade sports balls are now our specialty product that we have put an immense amount of technical work and research into. To create something that is not only ethically produced, yet also high quality and suitable to players of all standards. And for all balls purchased, RREPP contributes 10% back into the communities we help support, and 5% back to our producer to help them with the costs of being Fairtrade certified and creating an ethical and safe work environment for their workers. Plus another 1.5% of all our sales is contributed back to Fairtrade Australia which goes towards supporting their wonderful initiatives in the Pacific region. So Teams will be buying into a business model which is specifically set up to help alleviate poverty worldwide.

So we are now taking 12 pack orders, with our cut off deadline date being 20th January 2021. This is to ensure the balls can be produced and delivered to all teams in time for when training starts in 2021 (beginning of April approx.). To place an order or for further enquiries, simply make contact with us direct at [email protected] .

RREPP is Fairtrade certified, Social Traders certified and Australian owned.

RREPP Honoured To Be Awarded Social Traders Certification

Social enterprises are businesses that trade to intentionally tackle social problems, improve communities, provide people with access to employment and training, or help the environment. ST certification assures stakeholders that a social enterprise has a social, cultural or environmental purpose as its primary objective, and that the majority of the organisation’s efforts and resources are invested into the social purpose.

This is just another feather in the cap for RREPP, and recognition of the value of our unique business model. One that strives for transparency and fairness by putting the environment and the people who make our products first. Protecting not only the planet, yet everyone living on it.

Our newly awarded Social Traders Certification, combined with our Fairtrade Certification, is all about stopping generational poverty. Simply by trading fairly with our producers and workers. It means fair working conditions, decent wages, gender equality and safe work practices. All of which leads to a better lifestyle for our workers, which then sees their kids going to school rather than being sent to work at a very young age to help supplement family incomes. 

It sounds simple enough ! Yet the Sports Ball manufacturing industry and the fashion industry which RREPP is involved in, whether it be high end fashion, or grassroots School Uniform production, for decades has been terribly exploitive of people and planet. Yet this is what sets RREPP apart from its mainstream competitors. And is why buying from us has meaningful impact. Whether it be our ethically made Sports Balls, our Organic Fairtrade certified School Uniform Polos & Tees, or our boutique range of Corporate merchandise. It will always be a guarrantee that your School, Sporting Club, Business or Government Organisation's purchases, will be making a difference to the world. 

So it really is an honour and a privilege for RREPP to now be Social Traders Certified. And have it working along side our Fairtrade Certification to create needed awareness throughout Australia of our unique business model. Poverty alleviation and environmental respect, starting right at the core of our supply chains, will always be our primary focus. We look forward to working with you soon - coz the planet's watching !

Ethical Purchasing Towards Better Education & Poverty Alleviation

Education is everything in relation to alleviating poverty for the next generation in any community world wide.

For all of us to play a small part in this is easy. Basically we just need to purchase ethically wherever possible. So workers in developing countries can then be paid a decent wage to be able to afford to put their kids into school. A huge factor in breaking the generational poverty cycle.

It sounds ridiculously simple. Yet the concept works by putting all of us in control of this situation. It just needs a genuine will to turn rhetoric into action. From RREPP's perspective, we focus as a business on products aligned to two of the most exploitive industries in the world. The Garment industry and the Sports Ball manufacturing industry. Yet RREPP does things completely differently – it works within an ethically aligned business model that looks after people and planet.

Fast fashion and cheap sports balls come at a cost. Not only do they create extra landfill and stress on the environment because they are cheaply made and therefore have a short life span, there is also someone, somewhere else in the world, that is paying the true cost !!!

We see people exploitation here in Australia on far too frequent a basis. Wage theft by major retail chains, and by restaurants run by high profile celebratory chefs, has frequently been exposed by our media. It shouldn't happen in regulated countries like Australia, yet somehow it does. So you can only imagine what is going on behind the curtain in developing countries where Western businesses get most of their products made !

So for Schools, Sporting Clubs and larger Corporates, next time you speak to your School Uniform Polo, Sports Ball, or merchandise supplier, why not ask them who is actually making the products that they are selling to you. Are your suppliers working with ethical supply chains. Are the workers that are making their products being paid a decent wage so they can comfortably put food on the table for their families, and send their kids to school. Are your suppliers formally certified and third party audited to ensure basic human rights and ethical standards are adhered to for all workers throughout their entire supply chains ? Or is worker exploitation and child labour a hidden scourge where out of sight is out of mind. And over-ridden by unrealistic budgets and the need for cheap at any cost !

None of us in the western world would tolerate being exploited and under paid for our hard work. So why should it be any different in developing countries. Just because we refuse to look behind the curtain and ask the right questions. Kids going to school and being given an education can and will stop generational poverty. Yet if these same kids parents are not being paid enough and are continually exploited by western suppliers to save us all a few dollars, then none of us are playing a role as global citizens in this world.

We all need to be the change. With larger organisations such as Schools, Sporting Clubs and the Corporate sector, leading the way within their purchasing policies. Do we awaken or do we continue to sleep ? Do we take control and start asking the right questions, or do we just sit back and ignore, and continue to be part of the problem ?

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.
