That is why we have not only created Ball Rescuer as a tool to extend the useful life of the balls up to 10 times, but also, with a good part of the profits obtained from its sale, we are going to collect the unusable balls (at the end of their life cycle of repressurization) and we are going to reuse them for something else, thus preventing them from remaining in the ecosystems, where they would take up to 2,500 years to decompose. The uses of the collected balls will be:
• Soundproofing of classrooms in schools.
• Manufacture of rubber-based sports courts.
• Manufacture of clothing and footwear.
In Spain, about 10,000,000 tennis and paddle balls are consumed per year. Around the world about 500 million. In the long term, if each practitioner had a Ball Rescuer, the consumption of balls would be reduced by 90%, from 10 million to 1 million per year in Spain. In addition, with our collection system, we will ensure that those million balls do not end up in landfills, burning uncontrollably or contaminating soils and aquifers.

We firmly believe that the market economy must be sustainable and that economic benefit must not be at odds with caring for our valuable natural environment.
