The emergence of Fair Trade sports balls attacks the root cause of child labor: poverty. If parents are able to earn a decent wage, they are less likely to have their children enter the workforce.
When you hit the field, beat your opponent and conquer sweatshops at the same time! The need for fair wages, safe working conditions and equitable treatment applies not only to farm workers but to factory workers worldwide. Fair Trade sportsballs are unique products that combine the joy of sports and the satisfaction of social responsibility. Fair Trade Certified soccer balls, footballs, basketballs and rugby balls are available, stitched with a commitment to fair wages and sweatshop-free labor.
