Ugandan Junior golfers join the rest of the world in commemoration of world earth day with commitment to end plastic 

In the heart of Fort Portal city, Uganda, a beacon of environmental stewardship shines bright amidst the emerald greens of the Afriyea Golf Academy.

As the world unites in the fight against plastics on this year’s World Earth Day, junior golfers at AFRIYEA Golf Academy are leading the charge, wielding their clubs not just for precision shots but also for a planet free from plastic pollution.

Under the resolute guidance of CEO Isaiah Mwesige, AFRIYEA Golf Academy has transformed into a bastion of eco-consciousness, echoing a clarion call for action against the global scourge of plastics.

With a steadfast commitment to reducing their carbon footprint, these young athletes are pioneering sustainable practices both on and off the course.

At the forefront of their eco-initiative is a monthly cleanup campaign, where junior golfers, armed with determination and biodegradable bags, scour the landscape, ridding it of plastic detritus.

But their efforts extend far beyond mere cleanup endeavors; they are catalysts for change, advocating for systemic shifts towards sustainability.

Central to their mission is a rejection of conventional plastic-laden golfing paraphernalia. Instead, they embrace innovative alternatives like Greenup Tees, crafted from coffee waste biomaterials, and metallic water bottles, championing reusability over disposability.

Yet, their vision transcends the boundaries of the golf course, permeating into the fabric of everyday life.

In the words of Isaiah Mwesige, “We have had enough of plastics.” With over 450 million metric tonnes of plastic waste burdening our planet since 1950, and projections indicating a doubling of production by 2050, the time for action is now. Urgent calls resound for governments to enact stringent policies curbing plastic production and for manufacturing giants to invest in sustainable alternatives.

As Afriyea Golf Academy stands as a beacon of hope amidst the plastic pandemic, it underscores a poignant truth: the battle against plastics is not merely an environmental endeavor but a moral imperative.

In the crucible of their commitment to environmental sustainability, junior golfers are forging a path towards a greener, cleaner future—one swing at a time.

Sports particularly golf has a big role to play in saving mother nature earth as we celebrate this year’s theme of planet against plastic our company is proud even in the smallest we are approaching to address climate change by innovatively creating sustainable golf tees from coffee waste. For a golfer changing a tee is a relatively small effort but with a potential big effect. Not for the game, but for the environment. Compared to water bottles and what else tees are small but produced in millions and is equally as bad but more easy to replace. Less excuses more change.
