Yesterday I played in a golf fundraiser to raise money for a cause near and dear to my heart but completely irrelevant to energy conservation so unfortunately none of the money raised will be going to any environmentally based non-profits. What I do want to focus on is a spokeswoman that was waiting for my group on the 14th hole. She was a rep for a relatively new company in the golfing world named Dixon whose goal is to create an eco friendly golf ball that is bio degradable and 100% recyclable. Studies have shown that over 300,000,000 golf balls are discarded every year by golfers like you and I who are incapable of avoiding the trees, water, etc. so for Dixon to recognize this problem and create an innovative solution was groundbreaking. Not only were they able to completely redevelop the materials used in creating a golf ball but the Dixon Earth, their top of the line ball, is said to have out-performed many of the leading competitors on the market so for anyone who fancies themselves as a golfer, you cannot use performance as an excuse not to switch. If this entire concept wasn’t good enough already, the website claims they will give you a discounted price on Dixon balls if you bring in old used balls to be recycled properly. For those of you out there who aren’t into golf, I apologize for wasting your time on such a topic but for those who dare to play the game, next time you need a dozen (or two) golf balls, consider Dixon.
Hit em straight.
