Home > Purpose
Every year there are 3.2 million composite sticks produced worldwide. Today, each of these sticks is destined for a landfill. HockeyGreen was formed for the purpose of changing this situation by actively supporting solutions that will give these sticks an afterlife.
HockeyGreen’s goal for this initiative is
to collect broken or unwanted composite hockey sticks. By offering
players an incentive to return these sticks to Total Hockey, we hope
to slow the number of newer sticks going into landfills and even to
start emptying those garages and basements of broken or unwanted
sticks. Once we have helped recyclers
find an economically viable method for recycling sticks, we may be
able to accept stick returns in larger quantities. Someday perhaps,
the estimated fourteen million broken or unwanted composite sticks
just sitting out there may be made into other useful products.
