Thanks, Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays

Well it's that time of year that we would like to say a very big thank you to everyone for your amazing support in 2020. From our perspective it has been especially heartening over the past couple of years seeing a number of Schools & Clubs taking up the Fairtrade Challenge on our sporting fields, by purchasing their sports balls from RREPP. Whether it be for kids gala days, or more elite National title events. With most conventional sports balls being produced cheaply within the hidden scourge of adult exploitation & child labour, every sporting club and school in Australia should be taking a stand and swapping to ethically produced Fairtrade certified. We hope to see more of you on board in 2021. Actions certainly speak louder than words !
So if your local school or sporting club that your kids attend would like to know more, I can be personally contacted for a chat at [email protected] . We also offer excellent corporate discounts for Schools and Sporting Clubs. You can check out our Fairtrade Match & International range HERE . And if there has been any year that has made us all sit back, take stock, and reassess what is important in our lives, it's been 2020. Very much looking forward to the clock ticking over past midnight on the 31st December !! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.

Looking For Ethical Corporate Merchandise? Then Check Out RREPP's New Additions

Corporate Merchandise has traditionally been viewed as products made from questionable supply chains, and for the most part mass produced and made from plastics or some other form of synthetics. It's generally poorly made, has a short shelf life, and when thrown away into the land fill, takes 100's of years to break down in the environment. Yes it's cheap, yet in this day and age, surely it's time to start thinking more about people and planet, and consider merchandise that you would be proud to put your name to, and that sits more comfortably with your Corporate Social Responsibility Statements.

RREPP has aways had a focus on getting Schools, Sporting Clubs, Larger Corporates and Government Organisations, interested in purchasing our Fairtrade Sports Balls and Organic Fairtrade Uniform Polo's and Tees. With RREPP custom branding these organisations business names and logos onto our products as a means towards showing their communities and clients just how important purchasing with purpose really is to them. We love working with clients who, like us, are serious about looking after the planet and the people living on it.

RREPP has now introduced two more items into its business that come in a variety of styles and colours. Our new Tote Bags and Tea Towels are high quality which means they can be used for many years to come, rather than having a short life span. And even when they do come to the end of their life, they are 100% made from natural fibres, so simply biodegrade. And being made from Organic and Fairtrade certified cotton, it means both planet and people are looked after all throughout the production processes.

Our new custom made merchandise has a 500 piece minimum order requirement as standard (1000 pieces for custom colouring), and start from $5.90 (ex GST) per piece which includes all set up costs, professional branding plus free delivery. We can scale up to any order sizes which makes our new products perfect for larger corporations, Government orders, or any size organisation requirements for one off conferences for delegates, or annual client gifts.

So are you ready to put your brand to a purchase that has purpose ? Then simply contact us at [email protected] to find out more - coz the planet's watching !

#PurchasingWithPurpose: New RREPP Products For Schools & Sporting Clubs

Well it's all happening back here at RREPP HQ ! What do you think of our new Fairtrade certified Fluro orange Size 5 and Fluro yellow Size 4 Hi-Tech Match Hybrid Soccer Balls that we have just finished creating. These are our upgraded yet affordable lead in Match quality balls that have been tested to FIFA quality PRO standards. Yep, the same rigid testing we put our professional Phoenix Pro ball through ! Perfect for Schools and Sporting Clubs looking to Purchase With Purpose for 2021 without breaking the bank. With a percentage of each purchase giving back to our worker's communities overseas, supporting health, education and other community initiatives. Plus 1.5% of all our sales is donated back to Fairtrade Australia to help support their great work in our own Asia / Pacific region. 

So with our fantastic range of 6 different sporting codes (Soccer, Rugby, Netball, League, Touch Football and Futsal) all being ethically produced, Schools, Sporting Clubs, Teachers, Coaches, Students, Players and Parents will know that the RREPP sports ball being played with by their kids, is by far the Best & Fairest in Australia.

And we also wanted to make our Schools & Corporates aware of our new messaging that will now appear on the labels of all our Organic Fairtrade School Uniform Polo's and Tees.

PLEASE READ: Important Update From RREPP's Founding Director

Hi Everyone 

I hope this email finds you all safe and well. This update has been specifically sent to our existing clients and VIP connections only. 

Covid-19 has certainly called on a need for resiliance in all of us as individuals and as leaders in our respective roles. Whether it be as Business owners, Principals, Social Justice Coodinators or Teachers. Or leaders and decision makers in Companies, Sporting Clubs and P&C Committees. There is no doubt that we have all been tested to varying degrees, economically, financially and mentally. Our thoughts are especially with all our friends in Victoria at the moment.

As the Founding Director of a 'For Purpose' business like RREPP, I freely admit that I have been personally challenged over the past 6 months. Yet there is a wonderful saying by Winston Churchill that states 'Never Let A Good Crisis Go To Waste'. So instead of losing motivation and hope, we have used the last 6 months to remain positive, and stay focused on our business objectives. Which is to help workers, families and their communities work their way out of poverty. Whilst at the same time having a strong environmental focus in regards to how we conduct our business. 

Our Fairtrade Organic supply chains overseas have been hit harder than any of us could ever imagine. Think x100 to what we have been experiencing here in Australia. It's been heartbreaking watching it all unfold. Especially in the June quarter of 2020 when Covid-19 was at it's peak and a number of our larger orders for annual events were cancelled. Yet to ensure our workers overseas were not left stranded, unlike so many larger clothing brands across Australia, RREPP not only kept orders in place that we had commited to, we also paid in advance for future orders. So our workers could at least be paid a part income during lockdowns to support their families. Especially in places like India where our Organic Fairtrade garments are produced. For RREPP it simply ensured that during one of the most challenging times we have ever faced, we were never straying away from our Purpose as a business. 

From our perspective, we still believe that everyone in essence craves to belong to something bigger. And we are grateful that your Businesses, Schools and Sporting Clubs have supported RREPP and our ethical business model for such a long period of time. So the purpose of this email is to also gauge if your Organisations are on board again this year with your regular annual orders that normally get delivered early in the new year. Whether it be for your Fairtrade certified Match Sports Balls, or your Organic Fairtrade garments. Especially in relation to School Uniform Polo orders. 

Our biggest recent challenge though in this new 'normal' is that airfreight costs to ship into Australia have sky rocketted. To the extent that freighting our goods by air is not viable at the moment. As we have no intention of increasing our prices, our strategy to combat this issue is to start freighting all our orders into Australia by ship. The only catch is that deliveries will take an extra 30 days to arrive. 

So what we are doing is compiling all our orders together this year to create a larger production order that can be shipped in a container by sea, and to meet everyones normal deadlines for delivery at the beginning of the new year or the start of the new sporting seasons. We normally start taking 2021 orders from everyone this month in September, then through to December. Yet this year we would ideally like to have all orders locked in by mid October to the beginning of November at the latest. 

So this is a call out to all our Businesses, our Schools and Sporting clubs, for you to provide guidence to us on what orders you will be requiring for 2021. And whether you know of any other businesses, Schools or Sporting Clubs in your networks who would also love to start 'purchasing with purpose' in relation to their own Sports Ball and School Uniform Polo needs. As always we are offering our 20% discount to our Corporate Clients, with our prices staying exactly the same as last year.

So please let me know how you are all placed, and whether our October / November ordering deadlines are workable for you. I can be contacted directly at [email protected] or on 0422 004 954. We will also be making contact with our regular clients more personally next week. 

I look forward to hearing from you all. All the very best.
