14 Jul Fiercely at Play: Custom Team Uniforms for IBEW Local 1245
Custom Ethical Soccer Uniforms
IBEW Local 1245’s Annual Gold Cup Soccer tournament kicks off every May. We look forward to filling their order each year for USA made sporting goods. We get them everything they need – from their team jerseys that are USA made and union embellished, right down to shorts, socks, and hats. We even make their soccer teams “icing on the cake”: the award medals. We’re so pleased to work with an organization that appreciates ethical sportswear!
Where Ethics & Soccer Meet
In 2011, IBEW 1245 held our first annual Gold Cup Soccer Tournament. We brought together members from five separate tree trimming companies from across northern California. Our goal was to recognize their incredible work and to build and celebrate community. When we began researching prospective vendors for soccer jerseys that were made in the USA and union [printed], we called our colleagues at UNITE HERE. Without hesitation, they referred us to Ethix Ventures for their commitment to the labor movement, the quality of their products, and the easy working relationship.
Ethix: Our Custom Team Uniforms are Merchandise on a Mission!
Daniel and the Ethix Ventures team have helped us design our logo, researched inventory, gotten great deals on soccer uniforms and awards, and accommodated special needs – from plus plus sizes to expedited shipments. They have helped as trouble shoot and solve problems. We are now on our 3rd year of soccer! We’ve grown from 8 teams to 16 teams. The soccer tournament has become not only a celebration but a leadership development opportunity for our members. This year the logo on front of the soccer jerseys will read: AMISTAD, UNIDAD, Y SOLIDARIDAD (Friendship, Unity, Solidarity). Ethix Ventures has been a wonderful partner in the process.
