Green at the Golf Course? (Well of course yes, but I mean stuff)

14 Jan

This is a guest post by John Simonetta, owner of an eco-friendly promotional items consultancy (see proformagreen.com). John’s blogs are designed to keep us up to date on the “greening” of his industry.

Like our other vendors Norwood is coming out strong with numerous new green and eco-friendly products for 2009.

Norwood is one of the largest names in our industry and I am happy to see they are going green in a big way.

Take a look at this crazy use of recycled fabric that Norwood is now selling. Yes, that is a Wilson lightweight golf bag made from 100% recycled fabric. Norwood’s website boasts “eco-conscious golfers can feel confident with their game while helping the environment”.

I have to tell you that the closest I get to a golf course is the Nintendo WII with my nephews. Like many green thinkers I believe that a traditional golf course uses a bit too much land and way too much water, normally in places with little of both to spare.

But a quick Google search shows that many golf courses are trying to mend their ways, and that some Ecopreneurist think creating new, more environmentally stable courses is a great way to build a sustainable business.

Well if you are one of these folks, Norwood has your bag.

The Wilson(R) Eco Carry Bag is made from 100% recycled fabric, has a 9-1/2″x7-1/2″ top with 6-way divider and mesh-wrapped shaft protection and also provides a “Swivelmax” double strap.

In addition Norwood is also carrying the Wilson Eco Core golf ball also made from 100% recycled material. Add in the organic cotton, bamboo and PET caps and shirts already on the market and it looks like going green to the green is very possible.

Please see the Norwood website for more information on this bag and their other green products or contact us at info@proformagreen.com
