How Pickleball Is Becoming More Sustainable

  • Looking to play pickleball and still be an eco-warrior? Here are some companies that pride themselves on their low environmental impact.

Pickleball is a ton of fun. And as we learn more about how our purchasing decisions impact the planet, companies are answering the call for more sustainable goods. It’s easier than ever to find pickleball gear that can make you feel good about playing without the guilt of harming the planet.

How to Find Eco-Friendly Pickleball Gear

Finding eco-friendly pickleball gear is as simple as an internet search. Companies that use sustainable production practices pride themselves on the low environmental impact. They are typically transparent about how their products are made, packaged, and disposed of.  Companies that use sustainable practices often highlight that they use eco-friendly materials and minimal or recycled packaging on their website and product pages. They might even have an entire section of their About page or website dedicated to describing their environmental initiatives. 

You should also check the company’s credentials. If a company is designated a Certified B Corp, it means that it prioritizes sustainable practices and is transparent about how the company operates. 

Eco-Friendly Pickleball Gear

Ready to fill your pickleball bag with sustainable products? We’ve gathered a few eco-friendly items to help you get started. 

Revo Pure Control Paddle – Revolin

Revolin puts sustainability at the heart of its businesses, especially when it comes to paddles. Instead of using carbon fiber or fiberglass (and the fossil fuels required to produce them ) in their paddles, they developed a more sustainable option.

Their BioFLX material is made of hemp and flax fibers. In addition to its reduced carbon footprint, BioFLX material can also enhance your pickleball game. The material is strong and generates plenty of power. It also can dampen the vibrations from the pickleball.  

This particular paddle is Revolin’s best seller and is suitable for players at every level, especially if they seek more control and power in their shots. 

Outdoor 40 Hole Pickleball Balls – Eco Sports

Everyone’s had a pickleball crack, break, or sail over a fence, never to be seen again. These recyclable balls from Eco Sports are a great alternative and easy swap to help make your pickleball gear a bit more environmentally friendly. 

These pickleballs are made with thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), which is an environmentally friendly plastic. They come in packs of three and six. Eco Sports also says these pickleballs will help improve your game. According to the product description, TPE gives the pickleball a better bounce. 

Girlfriend Collective Prism Sport Skirt

Girlfriend Collective has activewear suitable for every body type and lifestyle. The best part? Girlfriend Collective is committed to sustainability, so you can trust that your purchase is fashionable and eco-friendly. 

The Prism Sport Skirt is made from recycled water bottles and comes in several colors. It’s the type of activewear staple you can wear running errands or during a heated pickleball game. When ready to part with the skirt, you can send it back to Girlfriend Collective through their ReGirlfriend program. The program allows you to send your garments back for store credit. You’ll help protect the planet and be able to add something new to your closet – a true win-win! 

Ocean Bottle 

Swapping one-use water bottles for a stylish reusable bottle is a quick, easy way to decrease plastic waste – and save a few bucks. There are plenty of stylish options to choose from, including the original Ocean Bottle. The reusable bottle is dishwasher safe and offers hot and cold insulation. Each bottle is partially made from recycled plastic. Ocean Bottle works with several collection partners to collect 25 pounds of plastic for every single bottle sold. 

You can also increase your positive impact with every sip you take. Each bottle features a smart chip so you can register it. Each refill results in the collection of even more plastic collection.

Recycle, Reuse

One giant step towards a greener tomorrow is through recycling and reuse. You can donate your old paddles and gear when you are ready to swap them out for an upgrade. And look for recycling options. Non profit organization, P3 cares is promoting sustainability and environmental awareness within the pickleball community with a unique recycling program. Making sustainable decisions doesn’t have to be difficult, especially when it comes to pickleball gear.
