Because it’s plastic, because we care.
BallTrace is made using recycled plastics, but we know that that’s not enough.
Trust us, we tried every other option. But the only way to make BallTrace durable enough for tennis, and strong enough that it wouldn’t need to be replaced, was to use plastic. However that doesn’t mean we’re not doing anything about it.
For every single item we sell from BallTrace, whether there’s plastic in it or not, we’re donating 1% of our annual profits via Work for Good to each of the charities below that help offset the environmental impact of plastic use:
The Climate Coalition is a group of 100 organisations and 22 million supporters.
It was large enough and loud enough to head the campaign that saw the UK become the first major economy to set a legally binding net zero emissions target.
Cool Earth gives cash directly to the indigenous people and local communities who tackle the root causes of deforestation.
Rainforests are the best carbon-storing technology on the planet, so maintaining them is important in an increasingly carbon world.
Surfers Against Sewage is a direct-action group that actively walks, rides, and swims the UK’s beaches – collecting single-use plastic that washes up on shore.
Left alone, it would find its way back to the sea and the cycle would repeat indefinitely.
