Off the Pitch Episode 33: Santiago Halty (Senda Athletics)
Off the Pitch: The Official NSCAA Podcast, rolls on with force after a busy weekend in Kansas City as the 2012 CONCACAF Men's Olympic Qualifying Tournament comes to a close. I took the time this week to chat with Santiago Halty, founder of Senda Athletics, the only company in the world with a main focus on manufacturing and selling fair trade soccer balls.
Why does fair trade matter? With the Fair Trade Certified label, you get quality products that improve lives and protect the planet. What you spend on day-to-day goods can change entire communities.
In this podcast, Santiago and I discuss fair trade and what it means to both Senda and the world at large. We look at ways that fair trade changes communities and how Senda is supporting Soccer Without Borders and other non-profits to change lives through the game of soccer.
