Did you know that over 325 million tennis ball are purchased each year? Less than a fraction of one percent of them are recycled. Tennis Recycles was created to change that. We are a nonprofit organization working toward sustainable solutions in tennis. In 2019, our goal is to implement a tennis ball recycling system in New York City + the greater New York area's over 80 tennis courts. In the long-term, our mission is to drive awareness and establish a system across the entire US.
We are raising money to:
- Purchase outdoor all-weather recycling bins to jumpstart a recycling program throughout New York City and the greater New York area.
- Pay for legal fees to become an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
- Keep the organization running.
YOUR support makes all the difference!
The support of the community is what made a pilot program with the NYC Public Parks possible in 2018; this year it will help to expand recycling efforts and prevent more tennis balls from ending up in landfills.
Thank you from the team at Tennis Recycles.
