EcoLax: Saving The Planet One Greaser At A Time

EcoLax: Saving The Planet One Greaser At A Time


Entrepreneurs, Mike and Matt Kim from Washington, DC, wanted to work this Summer, but also wanted to do something lacrosse related at the same time. The Kim brothers founded EcoLax. Project EcoLax is a recycling program aimed to refurbish used lacrosse balls while simultaneously saving the planet. With the exploding popularity of lacrosse, laxers are going through tons of balls every year. Many of these balls are used for a while and then thrown away when they become slick i.e. "Greasers". The mission of EcoLax is to refurbish your unwanted Greasers and give them a new life. The Kim brothers also profess throwing away one lacrosse ball is like trashing 11 empty bottles or dumping 25 plastic bags. View a video demo below.



EcoLax will be refurbishing balls at a number of events this Summer. The Kim brothers plan to use the proceeds to recoup their investment and then fund their mission trip to the Dominican Republic. The Kim brothers will be bringing lacrosse equipment to teach underprivileged childern the sport of lacrosse. Order an EcoLax Recycling Kit today by clicking here.

ignore “smart man” I have cleaned greasy balls with dove, they look nothing like that. And you can easily tell the high quality of the refurbished balls. Greasy balls get shinier the greasier they get. Therefore the mat white shows that the ball is as good as new. “smart man” can go troll somewhere else. I think what you guys are doing is fantastic, keep it up!

Obviously you have never taken an economics class or have some kind of common sense that the time, labor, and capital you spend on lacrosse could be used towards more useful things to actually alleviate suffering. Which you know, is kind of what I think god/jesus/good-person would have done. I find it extremely cruel that you would rather try to convert people than trying to help them in tangible ways.

Fantastic Idea: Check these new low cost options for the DIYer. I use my ReLAX refurbisher at least once per month. The 5 gallon version is a beast but the 2 gallon is easier to store and more than meets the needs of the average player. It takes off less than 1/128th of an inch each time you use it. You refurbish a single ball dozens of times before the are out of specification. SAVE THE WORLD 1 Player at a time.
