On Wednesday, instagrammer @antohack posted a video of himself whacking golf balls into the San Francisco bay from the cliffs at Lands End.
This annoys me for a thousand reasons, but most of all because it’s just wrong to dump more crap into the ocean.
After receiving some negative comments on his instagram post, @antohack replied “haha waiting for bait like ye to turn up. testing out my new ecobioballs.”
Ecobioballs are made by a company called Albus Golf who describe them as “Perfect for playing golf close to marine environments”. They claim the balls biodegrade in the water after 48 hours, and what’s more, release fish food from its core as a special treat for marine life. Ugh.
Ecobioballs are a distinct beige/brown color and the ones in @antohack’s video look pretty white. Just sayin’.
The post was sent to us by reader Pawel, who has been known to lead community cleanups of the trails and areas around Lands End.
“It boils my blood & breaks my heart at the same time,” Pawel said.
And let’s not forget that DIRECTLY behind @antohack is…Lincoln Golf Course. Is that not enough for you, dude?
