While 2-DG is known as the Golf Apparel Company that is helping fight the battle against Cancer by donating portions of proceeds to the Lampidis Cancer Foundation, we are also a company that is looking after the environment as well. We believe that by taking an Earth Conscious Approach to Golf Apparel, we can not only help save the people living on this Earth, but also help save the planet we call home.
We believe it is our responsibility to offer our customers high quality products made from sustainable materials to help stop Global Warming and Reduce our Carbon Footprint.
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
Between California and Hawaii lies a floating ‘island’ of trash known as “The Great Pacific Garbage Patch.” 1.8 trillion pieces of trash can be found polluting our ocean - just in this patch alone, which is bigger than the state of Texas. Of the 87,000 tons of garbage that make up The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, 46% is abandoned fishing nets, and the majority of the rest is comprised of other fishing gear.
These nets are known as “ghostnets” and pose a great threat to marine wildlife like whales, dolphins, seals, and turtles. It is estimated that approximately 100,000 sea animals are strangled or seriously injured by human pollution in the ocean. And, it’s only getting worse.
Renewable Golf Apparel
If these numbers are as unsettling to you as they are to us, you’ll understand why we chose to create our products with only 100% recycled fibers. We have partnered with a manufacturer whose mission is to repurpose these abandoned fishing nets to create beautiful high-tech fabrics that would otherwise end up in our oceans.
By purchasing 2DG’s renewable golf apparel, you not only protect yourself from harmful UV Rays, you also are assisting us in funding cancer research. If that’s not enough, by purchasing from 2-DG you become a part of the solution to make our oceans a cleaner and safer place for our animals. Now, that’s a purchase you can feel good about!
