For the average player who plays 3 times a week for an hour, a ball lasts about 1 week. That means every 12 weeks an average player orders a case of 12 balls. That's 3 cases a year. This means that every year, 36 balls per squash player are being thrown away. While this is not as much waste as the disposal of huge volumes of rubber like tires, why not make a difference where you can? The echo/2XP allows an average player to triple the useful life of a squash ball, thereby reducing the number of balls required per year to 12. That's 24 fewer balls entering the landfill per player per year.

In addition to the environmental desire to reduce rubber consumption, the echo/2XP is manufactured locally in the US.
