There’s bound to be a bunch of rugby balls purchased this month and next, so why not make them Fairtrade balls.
Perfect your spiral punt assured in the knowledge that whoever produced the ball was not a child or an exploited worker, or can afford to feed their family having been paid a fair wage for their work. The ball is the fruit of Etico’s labour, a small company based in Melbourne, which also produces a range of balls (under the name Jinta) and fashion and footwear (Etico). The Etico brand was the first non-food brand to gain Fairtrade certification. Order online at etico.co.nz
