Is Your School Or Sporting Club Ready To RREPPresent Fairtrade in 2020 ?

FAIRTRADE SPORTSBALLS:

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.

Yet for RREPP, conquering exploitation and modern day slavery, 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. Yet does this Fairness and Equality also 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. 

We offer a 20% discount to all schools & sporting clubs for all order sizes big and small. Plus FREE ball branding for larger orders of 100 balls or more per sporting code, for Schools or Clubs wanting to professionally add their logos to their Fairtrade Sports Balls. RREPP only produces high quality, longer lasting Match and International Match standard sports balls, and across 6 different sporting codes: Soccer, Netball, Futsal, Rugby League, Rugby Union & Touch Football.

PLEASE NOTE : All School Sports Ball orders must be in by 1st OCTOBER for delivery at the beginning of the new School Year in early February 2020. As a combined bulk order, it also allows us to provide the 20% discount off our website prices. All our sports ball categories can viewed on our website HERE

FAIRTRADE ORGANIC SCHOOL UNIFORM POLOS:

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 ? 

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 is it something worth thinking about to add in with your future sustainability initiatives ? There is no better way for School's to express their values than by having their students wearing their values - every single day of the year !

RREPP's discounted pricing starts from $25.40 (ex GST) for our Organic & Fairtrade Junior Primary School Cotton Polo's.

This price is inclusive of everything, including FREE delivery and colour matching exactly to your existing School Polo, plus embroidered or screen printed school branding (minimum orders are 300 - 500 Polo's per school)

Check out our Fairtrade School Uniform Polo promotional video below:

For all enquiries, please contact Scott Goddard below, and if you would like to read some of our TESTIMONIALS, they can be found on our website by clicking HERE

We looking forward to having your School on board and supporting Fairtrade in 2020.

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."

Purchasing With Purpose

In 2013 when RREPP was launched, we didn't know if our key business objectives were going to be attainable or not. We were starting to see many brands using the word 'Ethical' more frequently in their marketing. Yet we soon found out that when these businesses were asked the right questions, they were frequently unable to back their rhetoric.

We didn't want to become one of these businesses. 

6 years on and RREPP has gone from strength to strength. With Social Justice & Environmental sustainability remaining our core objectives. Backed by third party Fairtrade & Organic auditing bodies to make us accountable.

And during this time we have gradually built an action orientated client base, who truly understand the power of their purchasing. How when making ethical choices, they can transform the lives of workers, families and communities around the world. From those who make the sports balls that millions of us play with, to the clothes we wear everyday.

The garment industry remains one the dirtiest in the world. Both socially and environmentally. Yet RREPP has been able to transform it into one of the cleanest. Through using a unique supply chain from grower through to final stitch, that is 100% Organic and Fairtrade. And we are lucky to have found clients who are motivated to 'Walk the Talk' as well. Who back their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) statements with action rather than words. 

From the amazing Flight Centre Travel Group who in 2018 contracted RREPP to produce over 3500 custom made Tee's for their highest achieving staff attending their biggest Global Gathering event of the year in Berlin. To the Christian Football Federation of Australia (CFFA) who use RREPP's top tier Phoenix Pro Soccer Balls as their ball of choice at their annual National titles. Through to the School's who now have their students wearing our healthy & ethical 100% Organic Fairtrade uniform polos.     

These are exciting times where RREPP has become more bolder and beautiful as a business. Helped by a growing group of Corporates, Schools & Sporting Clubs who themselves are wanting to break into new ground in the Social Justice space. There are always barriers. Yet Organisations that are serious about their CSR find a way.

Inspiration creates passion and innovation. From there, becoming a 'FOR PURPOSE' business is merely a formality. More on our dedication to 'Transparency & Fairness' can be found on our website HERE

We look forward to doing business with you in 2019.

Flight Centre Shines A Light On Corporate Social Responsibility

Is it any wonder that the Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) was recently awarded the best Travel Agency Group at the 2018 National Travel Industry Awards. The award recognised the company’s commitment to delivering amazing travel experiences, right from initial daydreaming to arriving home ready to plan the next trip. Yet what we also love about Flight Centre is their can-do approach that is also embodied in their Corporate Social Impact and Engagement area. Their CSR is delivered through the Brighter Futures program – Building Brighter Futures, Where We Work, Live and Travel which harnesses the collective goodness of their people to drive initiatives that truly make a difference.    

Every July, Flight Centre hold their annual Global Gathering organised by their events arm cievents. This epic event brings together over 3500 of the company’s best and brightest staff from all over the world to celebrate the year’s success.

The celebrations included highlighting the Brighter Futures program, and RREPP was asked to create over 3500 custom branded Organic & Fairtrade Tees for all delegates and sponsors to wear throughout this event. T-shirts made from our unique and dedicated Organic & Fairtrade certified supply chain. From our organic cotton growers all the way through to the spinning and dyeing of the fabrics, to exact pantone colour matching, final garment production, printing, quality control and then delivery to Berlin in Germany, RREPP was there every step of the way, turning this great concept into reality.

The Flight Centre Foundation, FCTG’s philanthropic arm, also shined a light on an amazing charity called SolarBuddy, which is dedicated to educating and empowering the next generation to change the lives of children living in energy poverty.  FCTG staff have committed to building 10,000 SolarBuddy lights to be delivered to communities in Cambodia. To see the amazing work that SolarBuddy is achieving, visit their website solarbuddy.org or have a listen to Founder and CEO Simon Doble in this short video:   

Corporations, large and small, do have the ability to change the world by taking their CSR commitments seriously and putting words into ACTION. Big Business and other organisations such as Schools can help enterprises such as RREPP and SolarBuddy scale up, to create a much bigger impact and real social change. No one has ever made a difference in this world by being like everyone else, so we can only thank FCTG for putting their commitment to CSR at the forefront of the way that they do business - whilst also having a pretty good time along the way!
