The end of summer is near. If you're a tennis player, you might have a hopper or two full of used balls. Tennis balls might be 🟡 but we'd love for them to turn 🟢 in their final life!
Every year, millions of used tennis balls are discarded into the trash. They make their way to overflowing landfills and spend 400 years decomposing. Combined, they emit more than 20,000 metric tons of methane waste, and for some tennis balls, their lifespan is less than three sets. Read on for an easy way to give them a new life:
🎾 Tennis Express works in collaboration with RecycleBalls.org, a non-profit organization that collects and converts used tennis balls into eco-friendly products such as animal footing, traffic safety equipment, and even a new hybrid tennis court surface.
