Green Swing x World Ocean Day Bamboo Golf Tees

8 June

At Green Swing, we love golf and we hate plastic. We manufacture millions of golf tees a year and take great pride that every single one is well made from a sustainable source, bamboo.

Those of you familiar with the brand here at Green Swing may be aware of our Plastic Sucks mantra, and our link up with Less Plastic to promote more sustainable alternatives, particularly on the golf course.

This year, we have partnered with our friends at World Ocean Day (WOD) to raise awareness of their mission for a healthy ocean and stable climate.

For the past 20 years, WOD have bookmarked early June in the diary to shine a beacon of light to their cause. This year, World Ocean Day falls is on Saturday June 8th.

WOD is a global coordination of efforts and local initiatives to get more people involved in the protection of our oceans and their mission of protecting 30% of our lands and ocean by 2030, in partnership with Campaign for Nature.

While their focus is on one day (usually in June every year), they are also committed to providing resources and information all year round.

We wanted to help shine that light with a timely release of bamboo golf tees in a unique colour combination. A product that can act as a physical reminder and a great way to spread awareness around the initiatives run by the team at WOD.

We agree.

Inspired by the link between the Ocean and the Earth, these special edition bamboo tees come in a mix of blue and green with the WOD motif printed on the cup. Packed neatly within our signature Kraft box slide packaging which is fully recyclable.

On June 8th, our Limited Edition World Ocean Day 70mm Bamboo Golf Tees will be available in a limited quantity while stocks last. With 50% of all profits donated directly to World Ocean Day.

Our bamboo golf tees are strong, sustainable and biodegradable. We have created a wide range of colours, size and style options that make it easy for everyone to make the switch from plastic or wooden golf tees (bamboo being a grass of course!).

There are 50 tees in the box (25 of each colour), available only on our website with free delivery across the UK and same day dispatch before 4pm local time. Perfect for you or perhaps for someone looking to match the change from plastic golf tees, after all our bamboo tees make great golf gifts.
