“You’ve Been Trumped” Movie About The Dongald’s Dongish Effort To Build A Golf Resort On The Scottish Coast.

Having only watched the trailer for “You’ve Been Trumped,” I think I can safely predict how it goes. Donald Trump is a bully and a blowhard who probably takes pride in being despised on two continents. That’s why nothing prevents him from doing what he wants to do and his golf course, on a formerly pristine section of Scottish coastline, is a perfect example.

Want to reach him? Help him fail. Don’t play on the Aberdeen golf course and while you’re at it, ignore everything with Trump on it. He makes it so easy to spot and avoid. [NY Times]

Jubbling Case Study: Open Letter To Waste Management – Title Sponsor Of The 2011 Phoenix Open

Phoenix Open Golf Tournament TPC ScottsdaleEarth911.com posted an article about Waste Management’s efforts to “green up” this years Phoenix Open Golf Tournament. Last year, Waste Managements first as the title sponsor, they were able to encourage and reclaim 62% of the waste that was created during the week long event. And this year, they’re going even bigger by including BigBelly solar powered trash compactors, using kitchen collected greywater for use in the bathrooms etc. They’ll even have Recycling Ambassadors around the course to answer spectator questions about what is or isn’t recyclable – the one gig I wouldn’t want at this golf tournament.

Hooray for Waste Management and the 2011 Phoenix Open! What a great way to showcase your expanding waste disposal offerings.

But as Jubbling goes, I started thinking about this and wondered if I could help. Thinking out loud: “Last years Phoenix Open… 62% of the waste created was reclaimed… this year, you already have BigBelly solar powered trash compactors… I hope that thing floating in the toilet came from the kitchen and was not deposited by me.” And then it hit me – yes, I can help. Please accept this letter and be aware that I expect nothing in return. [Read more…]

You should get a stroke for using Dixon Golf balls.

Dixon Golf BallsAre your balls in the rough? Are you not Jubbling when you swing your stick? It is easy to notice that the game of golf is not exactly earth friendly, why with all those gas-powered golf carts and showering sprinkler heads. Well, let’s clarify a bit, shall we?

One company, Dixon Golf, has now made losing golf balls in the rough, or even finding the lost balls of others to be. Dixon Golf offers the Earth Ball, a moderately priced ball that can be recycled after use. Heck, they’ll even give you a $1 towards new Dixon balls when you recycle their own and $.50 when you recycle another brand. That’s Jubbling folks! Here’s what they offer (directly from their website):

  • High-performance
  • Made from renewable materials
  • 100% recyclable with a recycling program to back it up
  • Does not contain heavy metal pollutants like cobalt, tungsten, or lead
  • 100% recycled packaging

Read their reviews. Many said the Dixon Earth Ball is a better play than more expensive brands. That’s important if you’re going to lay down cash for a Jubbling product versus a tried and true performer but it’s exactly the kind of thinking that will change the game.

Dixon also touts themselves as responsible corporate neighbors. They report that communications are mostly emailed instead of paper mailings and that 25 percent of their employees use carpooling or public transportation in order to lessen overall emissions.  And check this out – 10% of all their profits are used for philanthropic advances. Think of that as multi-level Jubbling!

Of course, some things will never change: I’ll continue to shank more balls than I hit for par but at least now, when I lose a ball, I can smile with pride at my Jubbling.
