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!

The Cleanest Uniform In Australia !

Every now and then RREPP collaborates on a social justice campaign with another organisation that we just know is going to have massive impact. Not just on the workers, their families and the communities we help support overseas, yet also our Schools Nationally who by coming on board and supporting, are making a clear and conscious decision to support social justice through purchasing a fantastic Fairtrade product. 

RREPP has recently joined forces with our governing body Fairtrade Australia New Zealand via an ongoing campaign drive to encourage Schools throughout Australia to switch to purchasing School Uniform Polo's made from Fairtrade Cotton. It really is such a simple thing to do and for very little extra cost. In fact for about the same price as a cup of coffee that we all might buy after dropping the kids to school, we could be dressing our next generation in RREPP's high quality, environmentally and socially conscious Organic and Fairtrade certified polo's.

So no matter how dirty your kids school uniform might get, if it is made with Organic & Fairtrade Cotton, it will always be clean from child labour and the unethical practices that continue to plague the garment manufacturing industry even today. Check out the campaign video below (33 secs), and RREPP's own campaign video (1 min 31 secs) and let us know what you think. Switching to Fairtrade today WILL help provide kids everywhere with the childhood and education they deserve. 

We didn't invent the School Uniform Polo, but we sure have made it better ! If you'd like to find out more, simply contact Scott Goddard at info@rrepp.com.au  - coz the planet's watching ! 

* RREPP was awarded the highest A+ ranking in Australia by Baptist World Aid in their 2017 Ethical Fashion Report

Stepping Back To School In Organic & Fairtrade Uniform Polo's

Is Your School Ready to Add A Socially & Environmentally Conscious Uniform Option Into Your School Uniform Shop ? 

Everyday in our Business we are constantly looking at new ways in which we can create something unique and inspiring for our clients, that gets us all involved  in creating a better world tomorrow. Having recently been awarded Baptist World Aid Australia's highest A+ ranking in their 2017 Ethical Fashion Report, ranking above over 300 Australian Fashion brands, it has given RREPP the incentive to continue to pursue innovative ways to create meaningful change through action rather than words.   

And so in this months BLOG we want to bring to your attention our latest promotional video. It introduces Kids, Parents, Teachers, P&C Committees and Principals across Australia to our newly developed ethically made Organic & Fairtrade Certified School Uniform Polos. Polo's that bring Social Justice and Environmental awareness into the minds of all of us, especially our children, and on an everyday basis. Our aim is to encourage Australian school's to make the swap away from their conventionally made Uniform Polos, and to consider purchasing something that is more sustainable and that also has positive social impact.

Dressing our next Generation in Organic & Fairtrade is not just a local initiative, it's also a powerful global one, which helps support 100's of workers, families and communities that make up RREPP's ethical supply chains. There is no better way to show our values than to WEAR OUR VALUES, and this is what RREPP's new School Uniform Polo's are giving our Schools, our kids, our future leaders, the opportunity to do !

So read our Testimonials ,  check out our Website , and above all take a look at our new video below, and envisage how inspiring it would be to see students across Australia stepping back to school in Polo's that are designed to make a difference. Would you like to know more - then simply contact us at info@rrepp.com.au or on 0422 004 954 - coz the planet's watching !

Corporate Social Responsibility That 'Treks the Track'

Is your company genuinely serious about its Corporate Social Responsibility ?

RREPP has recently worked with a progressive small business called On Track Expeditions who specialise in historical tours along the Kokoda Track. On Track is run by Richard and Andrew James whose father Bill James wrote 'Field Guide to the Kokoda Track' which is an absolute must read for any aspiring Kokoda trekker, or historian for that matter. On Track's business model works in partnership with the Abuari village to promote microbusiness and improve the livelihoods of the local people, and they are committed to better health and education outcomes along the track by supporting the work of the Kokoda Track Foundation.

The business has also developed a youth leadership program in partnership with the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, and takes three groups of disadvantaged young Australians across the track each year. They work with youth organisations such as Project Booyah, The Queensland Police and Community Youth Club, South Australia's Police Blue Light program, and are the chosen operator for many schools, colleges and universities such as St Pius X College, Wenona School, Shore School and St Paul's College.

With social justice such a genuine aspect of their business model, Richard James recently asked us to create for them some custom made Organic & Fairtrade Certified T-shirts with their business logo printed across the front, to help professionalise the look of their team of porters. They also purchased from our Crowdfunding campaign earlier this year a number of our Phoenix Pro Fairtrade Soccer Balls, which they have since donated to the kids from a number of schools and villages along the Kokoda Track. A company that is literally walking the walk, or in this case, 'treking the track' when it comes to proactively engaging in social justice initiatives within their everyday business activities. Inspiring to say the least, and proving that when corporate social responsibility is actually hard wired into your businesses DNA, then helping improve the lives of others suddenly becomes a daily reality, not a vague 5 or 10 year plan that is unlikely to see the light of day !!

So if your School, University or Sporting Association is ever looking for a unique and inspiring option to encourage your students or players to start walking a path towards becoming better people, or perhaps even our world's next change leaders, then take a look at www.ontrackexpeditions.com.au or simply contact Richard direct at richard@ontrackexpeditions.com.au for futher information.

Now this is what Corporate Social Responsibility is really all about !
