By now, most of us know the importance of Fair Trade(if not, find out here). We are also more aware that products such as sugar, coffee, and chocolate can be easily purchased Fair Trade Certified.
However, did you know you can purchase Fair Trade Soccer Balls? While soccer, or futbol, as half of the world refers to it, is the most popular sport on the planet, we should insist on buying Fair Trade equipment.
In the small town of Berkley, California, a different kind of sports company started. This company called Senda sells a variety of soccer equipment all Fair Trade Certified.
They “sell top quality soccer balls and training gear. As part of [their] mission, [they have developed] long-term partnerships with non-profit organizations using sports to transform the lives of young people in the US and abroad. [They] supply durable soccer balls and other equipment to [their] partners, and plan to provide training and sports curricula to increase social impact.”
