Less Naughty. More Nice. Fair Trade Soccer Ball (giveaway)

{Less Naughty. More Nice. is a way for me to promote amazing products with reviews and giveaways! I am sharing ethically produced products in advance of the Christmas buying season. I have a heart for fair trade, eco-friendly and U.S. made companies. It will continue through November 11th. I am receiving no financial compensation for these promotions. However, I have received sample product in order to supply you an authentic and honest review.}

Let me introduce Fair Trade Sports, Inc. This company is amazing! I am so excited to have found this company. I love sports and have always looked forward to buying my little guys' some equipment. Even though I played every sport except soccer, I thought a soccer ball would be fun to kick around at the park with the boys. But this isn't any ole soccer ball created by any ole company...

Fair Trade Sports is the first sports equipment company in the U.S. to launch a full line of eco-certified fair trade sports balls, ensuring fair wages and healthy working conditions for our adult workers. They also offer sweatshop-free apparel. Learn more about their certifications here.

I had the opportunity to review this club size 3 soccer ball. Which is for children under 8.

Why it's great!...

1. Colorful and fun! My 1 and 3-year-old have a blast with it.
2. Fair Trade!...which means the adults who have produced this ball received a fair wage at no extra cost to you.
3. Eco-certified, union-made and vegan. WOW! I didn't know soccer balls could be vegan!
4. All after-tax profits go to children's charities.

I know us Moms are all buy sporting goods multiple times a year. Especially in thinking toward Christmas gifts for the special kiddos in your life. I encourage you to support this very unique company.

Buy it: Eco-soccer ball club size 3 retails for 34.99

Win it: Fair Trade Sports is giving one Blondes, Poop & Mascara winner a Eco Soccer Ball (Club Size 3 Dots). Leave me a comment telling me who will be kicking this ball around and one other product that you would like for yourself or family.
