Turning plastic mesh into recycled golf tees

The DOW Championship

United States

The Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational has teamed up to produce 20,000 golf tees made from plastic mesh fencing recycled from the 2019 tournament. The innovative partnership is an example of how the LPGA’s first GEO Certified® tournament continues to build on its commitment to promote sustainability in sports and promote a circular economy.

“This is a prime example of how the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational is teeing up inventive ways to stage and host a tournament that minimize waste and save resources,” said Dow GLBI executive director Chris Chandler.

The mesh-to-tees project is part of a comprehensive 5-year Dow GLBI sustainability strategy that includes efforts to minimize and mitigate the tournament’s climate impact; promote biodiversity; advance resource efficiency and a circular economy; increase access, equity and diversity inclusion; and inspire others beyond the event.
