The first golf bag made from recycled bottles


Sun Mountain has introduced the new ECO-LITE golf bag, made from 25-30 recycled plastic bottles.

Available as a stand bag or trolley bag, both water-resistant, the bags are more eco-friendly than those made in the standard way. 

“We’re thrilled to bring the first bag of its kind to the market that incorporates material made from recycled plastic bottles, while ensuring golfers can benefit from the premium features associated with top-selling Sun Mountain stand bags,” says Tony Fletcher, Sales Manager of Brand Fusion International, who distribute Sun Mountain's across Europe. “Innovation is at the core of the brand and we believe these pioneering ECO-LITE bags will prove popular with golfers looking for eco-friendly options."

Around 25 plastic bottles are recycled into highly durable fine threads to form the durable fabric of each ECO-LITE stand bag.

Weighing less than 2kg, the bag features a contoured E-Z Lite Dual Strap System to guarantee comfort and ease of use, plus a 4-way top provides plenty of club space. It also includes a comfort-grip handle to assist in picking up and setting the bag down.

The lightweight bag incorporates six spacious pockets, including a roomy apparel pocket, a velour-lined valuables pocket and a hydration sleeve. A separate rain-hood is included.
