Scuti's Grips: The First 'Green' Golf Grips

For the first time in the history of golf, players used ‘green’ golf grips at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. These green grips were created by a company called ‘Scuti’s Grips’ and went over nicely. Since most grips are created from rubber or plastic, the BigLite EFG grips are created from biodegradable foam. This helps golfers stay on their game and on the side of the environment. One of the greatest things golfers noticed about these new green golf grips is that they are lighter – up to 60% lighter than their rubber or plastic predecessors. Designed with million of tiny air bubbles, the BigLite grips help absorb more of the shock as well. This is great news for golfers as it can help reduce the pain arthritis sufferers and may even reduce injuries sustained from golf. The problems rubber grips create for our environment are similar to the problems tires create. They’re not recycled and more than 200 million of these rubber grips thrown away each and every year. The impact that Scuti’s Grips can have on the environment has the potential to be huge – and wonderful! So, what’s the price for these super-light, absorbent and eco-friendly new golf grips? The average cost is around $20. The best part though, is knowing that you’re doing something great for the environment when you trade in your rubber or plastic grips and replace them with one of these biodegradable ones. Now that is a win-win situation! Photo Courtesy of www.biglitegrips.com

These are fantastic! The fact that they help the environment as well as help people play longer into life should make these a revolution in the industry.
