Ocean Tee is delighted to announce that we are to exclusively supply the PGA EuroPro Tour with sustainably sourced bamboo golf tees for the 2020 season.
The tees will be packaged up in recyclable, custom branded matchboxes offering a plastic free and low-cost solution to showcase the Tour’s commitment to environmental responsibility. Ed Sandison, Managing Director of Ocean Tee said, “It is fantastic to see commitment on this scale from an established and high-profile organisation. It is our mission to build a brand that pushes sustainability to the forefront of the European golf industry and we hope that the PGA EuroPro Tour’s focus on this area is going to lead the way for other clubs, operators and organisations”. Dan Godding, Chief Executive Officer of the PGA EuroPro Tour said, “Partnering up with Ocean Tee made perfect sense for us as soon as I got my hands on the tees. We’re doing everything we can on the Tour to improve our carbon footprint. We hope this is the next step to changing the world of sport and its outlook on the environment”.
Bamboo is an ideal material for manufacturing golf tees as it is both strong and flexible, producing a durable tee that is less prone to snapping than traditional hardwood. In addition, as a grass species, bamboo grows at an astonishing rate with complete stocks replenishing within months after harvesting compared to the decades taken for hardwood forests. As a business we want to see bamboo overtake plastic and hardwood to become the number 1 material used to manufacture tees.
Ocean Tee donates 25% of corporate profits to charities focused on tackling plastic pollution and protecting the health of our marine environments.
