Play Golf and Feed the Fish with Ecobioball

Our seas and oceans are badly contaminated, especially with plastic waste, which affects animals and plants in the waters. Jeremy wrote in The Great Pacific Garbage Patch: Out of Sight, Out of Mind that "the floating expanse of waste and debris in the Pacific Ocean is now covering an area twice the size of the continental U.S. believed to hold almost 100m tons of flotsam, this vast "plastic soup" stretches 500 nautical miles off the Californian coast, past Hawaii and almost as far as Japan". Between 40% and 60% of the waste collected on beaches is plastic, according to the book Green Plastics by E.S. Stevens (Princeton University Press, 2002). The trash has often travelled for miles before being washed up on the shore somewhere. So what if you like to play golf on the beach, on a cruise ship or from your boat? Well, now you can do exactly that without littering, but feeding the fish instead.The Ecobioball is a 100% biodegradable, non-toxic golf ball that you can use to play real golf on the water, full swing! The use of plastic golf balls is illegal near water due to the waste it leaves behind. That's why the Spanish company has just launched an alternative golf ball, to be able to play golf on the sea without littering. Ecobioballs claims to be 100% safe for the flora and fauna of the sea, as it is fully biodegradable and non-toxic. Once the balls hit the water, they biodegrade in less than 48 hours, letting out the fish food they contain inside. Let's hope the fishes enjoy their meals! ::Albusgolf
