Fair Trade Sports balls:


It took me a while to find these great balls. I didn’t want to get a cheap toxic China made plastic ball, so I went on a hunt for an eco-friendly ball. I was busy searching for a month! I looked for balls on their site for kids, then thought “why can’t he play with an adult ball?”. So I got him a regular sized soccer ball. He plays with it every day! It is a quality ball I know he can use way beyond his toddler years.


This company is Fair Trade (I think they are the only company in the world making eco-friendly fair trade balls) all the balls are made with eco-certified rubber and says “Respect” on them (as in “respect for the hands that made this ball”)… sweeeeet! Made in Pakistan. They got all kinds of sports balls and also in small sizes. Also, these are the world’s first vegan balls, since they don’t use any animal by-products in the glues or elsewhere. Organic cotton is coming up as well (in the threads that hand-stitch the balls together). All after-tax profits are donated to children’s charities. LOVE these balls!
