OCEANTEE are striving to push sustainability to the forefront of the golf industry by providing premium quality, sustainable golf products to golfers, clubs, owners and organisations across the world. OCEANTEE chooses materials, processes and manufacturers that make as little impact on the environment as possible. From sourcing responsibly to designing shipping and packaging strategies, OCEANTEE are constantly striving to reduce the global footprint of the business. As part of its commitment to cementing long-term change OCEANTEE donates 25% of corporate profits to charities dedicated to combatting plastic pollution.
Ed Sandison, Founder of OCEANTEE, said, “We’re delighted to add the LET to our company’ partner list and we are excited by the potential impact that the partnership can deliver. Working with leading players and tournaments has always been an ambition for the business, but what really drives us is the opportunity to influence change. By working with the LET not only will we continue to increase the use of bamboo sustainable tees, but we will also be able to educate the golfers of tomorrow about the importance of sustainability and the impact of pollution.”
OCEANTEE, LET and the Marine Conservation Society are set to deliver sustainability educational sessions in 2021. The first session is scheduled to take place in the early part of the season, inviting children aged 11-15 and will combine a ‘classroom’ element with an outdoors activity, such as a beach clean. Topics will include sources of pollution, the impact on marine environments and actions that children can take themselves to drive change at their own golf clubs. More information will follow shortly.
