Green Sports Balls Score Big

For those that might not know, I love to play soccer. I play three to four times a week on a co-ed league. And I most say...I feel a little left out. Why?

An ecofabulous crew recently enlightened me to the world of Fair Trade Sports. They dedicate their time to not only raising awareness but screaming to us athletic folks to stop buying cheap, dirty sports products made in China, and consider eco-friendly solutions. Fair Trade Sports goods have...

Apparel that is sweatshop free.

All sports balls (soccer, basketball, volleyball) are certified - meaning it is stitched by adult workers paid fair wages who are ensured healthy working conditions.

And to top it off - all after-tax profits are donated to kid's charities.

Their number #1 seller is the "Respect" soccer ball. Size 5 that costs $29.99 comparable to a Nike USA ball that costs $29.99. Consume less. Play more.
