eco soccer balls

I was glad to hear about a company called Fair Trade Sports as they now have the "world's first eco-certified soccer balls for children". I am always humbled when I find an eco-solution to an aspect of life that I didn't consider before.

Fair Trade Sports, Inc is the first sports equipment company in the US to launch a full line of eco-certified Fair Trade sports balls, ensuring fair wages and healthy working conditions for adult workers.

Not only that, but they are committed to donate all profits after taxes to children’s charities, both domestic and international. Sound familiar? It’s a similar idea to the one behind the Newman’s Own brand you see in the grocery store.

Soccer moms go green!
