Dixon Golf balls have multiple eco-friendly attributes. First, the core of the golf ball is compounded of heavy earth salts as opposed to heavy metal fillers. Second, the cover is an elastodynamic polyurethane material. This changes the properties of the polymer to be organic and allows the polymer to be broken down. Third, the packaging for all Dixon golf balls is SEC certified bond paper and 100% recycled Kraft paper.
No, they are not biodegradable. Although, Dixon golf balls do reduce the carbon footprint because natural compounds, such as rock salt, are used that are not as harsh on the environment.
Dixon has a variety of recycling efforts in place as well as partnerships that enhance the recycling process. Dixon partners with recycling centers that break down the contents of the ball to be used for sports fields and athletic tracks. Furthermore, Dixon heavily contributes to programs that reutilize golf balls for science experiments, art projects and youth golf programs/training.
