Africlear, a global specialist in tailor-made packaging solutions, has partnered with the Sunshine Tour to offer a new eco-friendly bottled water solution at the upcoming Sunshine Tour events.
At the next three tournaments â€“ the Kit Kat Group Pro-Am, the Players Championship and the Gauteng Championship presented by Betway â€“ Africlear will provide bottled water for the Sunshine Tour professionals.
But as part of the Tourâ€™s drive to be an environmentally sensitive Tour with a strong focus on limiting the impact its tournaments have on the local environment, Africlear will also offer an extensive plastic bottle recycling programme at each tournament.
â€œWe love golf, we love the incredible golf courses where the Sunshine Tour events are played, and we want to help look after them,â€ said Africlear CEO Dewald Gelderblom.
â€œOur goal is to bring clean bottled water at a reasonable price to the Sunshine Tour professionals while at the same time cleaning up afterwards and caring for our environment.â€
Thomas Abt, Commissioner of the Sunshine Tour, welcomed Africlear as a new partner.
â€œThis is another important step for us in our quest to have partners who add value to what we as a Tour are trying to achieve, and in this instance itâ€™s our desire to make as little impact on the environment of the golf courses where we play and to leave them in the same pristine condition as when they were entrusted to us by the club management and members.â€
