Our network partners are adopting our scalable collection solutions and spreading the word.
Convenient bins make it easy. Tennis players universally love this.
Prepaid UPS shipping labels make it easy for bins to be shipped to our facility in Vermont.
Some of the Tennis balls are ground up and the felt is separated from the rubber. We call the rubber crumb generated; GREEN GOLD. Other balls are sold and reused as dog balls.
GREEN GOLD is used in the construction of tennis courts, horse footing and hopefully soon, with more R&D, a variety of green products.
RecycleBalls GREEN GOLD is a processed natural crumb rubber obtained through the grinding and separation of recycled tennis balls, which we collect through our national QUICKSHIP and QUICKLABEL programs.
We have invested nearly two years in full R&D to develop a process that will remove 99% of the felt in a cost-effective manner. This extensive research had us in consultation with dozens of manufacturers and processors nationwide. This solution is currently up and running installed in our 9,000 SF South Burlington Vermont facility.
Our unique new PLAY IT GREEN machine produces GREEN GOLD that is used in a number of products.
Tennis ball courts are the new product in the market which effectively uses recycled, used up tennis balls.
We are working to promote a revolutionary stucco replacement that will use our GREEN GOLD from recycled tennis balls. This product has several unique advantages:
This product is ideal as a natural rubber mulch or ground cover and is metal and dye free. It provides a unique and natural looking ground cover that can be used in a number of applications.
We are the first organization to provide “NO TRASH” dog balls that allow folks to purchase dog balls and then recycle them back to us at no -cost. Our balls are sold on eBay.
We are currently working with manufacturing partners and are developing a sports shoe with a sole made entirely from “Green Gold”. We have also been successful in blending tennis ball felt with cotton and polyester. Both of these efforts will require further development and hold the promise as viable sources of income from tennis ball recycling efforts.
