    In recognition of Fair Trade Month, we want to spread the word of Fair Trade Sports.

    Fair Trade Sports has joined the battle against Child Labor with their practices.

    Fair Trade Sports RESPECT® sports balls are certified for quality by several third party agencies, including NFHS, FIFA, and SA8000. Rest assured Fair Trade Sports balls are hand stitched by adults who are paid a certified living wage and ensured healthy working conditions.

    Fair Trade sports balls (soccer, football, basketball, rugby, volleyball, and more) are a great eco-friendly, green gift that are a tangible proof point to educate US consumers on the benefits of Fair Trade and the fight against child labor, with all after-tax profits go to charity.

    Thank you to everyone for your support and happy playing!
