We all want our kids to play fair on the sports field. How about playing “Fair Trade” as well? Did you know that there is a sports equipment company called Fair Trade Sports that has launched a full line of Eco and Fair Trade Certified sports balls for soccer, football, basketball, and more? This means that when this equipment is manufactured, adults workers are receiving fair wages in healthy working conditions. Think of it as socially responsible sports balls!
Fair Trade Sports’ products have an additional cool factor with words like “RESPECT” printed on the equipment and apparel. And, following in the footsteps of trailblazing companies like Newman’s Own, Fair Trade Sports donates all their after-tax profits to children’s charities. Sounds like a team we want to be part of!
