Los Angeles - January 23, 2023 - Conga Sports Inc, a new provider of tennis programs in California, announced a new initiative to alleviate the impact the sport of tennis has on the environment worldwide. Hundreds of millions of tennis balls are being manufactured each year and millions of those end up in landfills all over the world. While there is no large-scale program for recycling those balls, Conga Sports has started its own tennis ball initiative by recycling all used tennis balls and signing up as Business Partner with One Tree Planted.
Conga Sports sends all used tennis balls to RECYCLE BALL in Vermont and pledges to plant one tree for every can of tennis balls used within their programs. “As part of our ONE MILLION TREES PLANTED BY 2030 goal, we’ll grow and conserve trees from the wildfire-ravaged areas in the United States to the deforested areas of the Amazon rainforest,“ said Conga Sports founder and president Rich Neher. “We planted 277 new trees in 2022 and we’ll do our part to help accelerate reforestation efforts and mitigate the impacts of climate change.”
Neher continues, “They say the climate change crisis is the number one issue facing humanity today. Our partnership with One Tree Planted demonstrates how we are turning our sustainability commitment into meaningful community impact. That way we are already today doing our part toward a more sustainable future in racquet sports.”
