AFTERLIFE™ is an initiative introduced by Sports for Hope Foundation with an objective to raise the consciousness of sustainability through various sports games. This very first project of AFTERLIFE™ is a collaboration with Douglas Young to give birth to a series of pieces of art furniture using abandoned tennis balls collected across Hong Kong. All proceeds generated go towards the many charitable causes of the Foundation.

Sports plays such a vital role in our lives. Not just in terms of physical health but also in building friendships and forming communities.
A tennis ball seems like such a small thing, but it’s responsible for so much enjoyment. The team at REN Studios powerfully captured this message through this animation that they produced for us:
Let’s not forget about that excitement when we the game ends.
Let’s make sure that we don’t just extract the good and leave damaging waste.
Let’s responsibly carry the energy and thrill of the match through to the finish, recycling these balls and giving them a new life.
Our hope is that by giving this message of inspiration, we won’t just see recycling as a frustrating task. Instead, we will see it as an opportunity to be respectful to the sport of tennis, to the communities around us, and to this precious planet.
