EcoSlice / Squeegee

EcoSlice
EcoSlice

There are approximately 300 million tennis balls produced each year, which contribute roughly 14,700 metric tons of waste in the form of rubber which is hardly biodegradable. So we recycle them to dry out tennis courts after rains. Because of the subtropical monsoon climate, it rains a lot in Taiwan. Raining is the biggest problem for people who like to exercise, tennis players especially. Therefore, I designed “EcoSlice”, a squeegee consists of recycled tennis balls. EcoSlice not only reuses the waste, but also saves the original squeegee foam or rubber. It is certainly a novel way to protect our earth.
