AFTERLIFE™ is an initiative introduced by the Sports for Hope Foundation to raise the consciousness of sustainability through various sports games The first project by AFTERLIFE™ is in collaboration with Douglas Young, one of Hong Kong's most pre-eminent designers and Founder of the heritage brand, Goods Of Desire. Together, they have created a series of art furniture using used tennis balls collected throughout Hong Kong to raise awareness of the wastage caused by tennis balls. In Hong Kong alone, more than 2 million tennis balls are discarded and end up in landfills each year. Created under Douglas's guidance, each piece is unique and handcrafted. The profits from AFTERLIFE™ go towards the many charitable causes of the Sports For Hope Foundation.
