Wilson Staff is proud to introduce the new Wilson Staff Eco-Carry golf bag, the first golf bag on the market made from 100 percent recycled polyester fabric, offering eco-conscious golfers a fashionable and environmentally-friendly golf bag.

The eco-friendly lightweight carry bag utilizes GreenPlus fabric. One Wilson Staff Eco-Carry golf bag is made from the equivalent of 12 plastic one-gallon bottles, similar to two-liter soda bottles. In the initial manufacturing phase, the plastic bottles are crushed into plastic flakes. The flakes are then transformed into a stable fiber through a process called de-polymerization and re-polymerization. Lastly, the stable fibers produced from this process are woven into a filament yarn that is used as the fabric for the final product. This process reduces the release of carbon dioxide by 70 percent as compared to normal polyester production that can be harmful to the environment.

Designed in an earthy, moss green color, the Wilson Staff Eco-carry golf bag is lightweight (3.7 lbs.) and durable. The slim form features an exclusive, soft neoprene handle and six-way top divider. With a paddle-activated stand built into the top of the bag, a Swivelmax double strap and ergonomic hip pad, the bag is designed to be eco-friendly on the environment and extremely comfortable to carry.

To accompany the environmentally friendly bag, Wilson Staff also has developed the Eco-Core golf ball. The core is manufactured with devulcanized, recycled rubber tires, which reduces landfill waste. The Eco-Core uses 50 percent less packaging and is made from recycled board stock.

The genesis of the Wilson Staff Eco-carry golf bag and Eco-Core golf ball is Wilson Staff's dedication to think globally and play locally, encouraging golfers to take their best shot at doing their part to improve the environment for generations of golfers to come.

Since 1911, Wilson Golf has designed, manufactured and distributed premium and recreational golf equipment throughout the world. Wilson Golf is a division of Chicago-based Wilson Sporting Goods, one of the world's leading manufacturers of sports equipment by Amer Sports.
