Dixon has just introduced a ball specifically for women, the Dixon Spirit, which it calls "the world's first 100 percent eco-friendly golf ball designed for her." The ball features a Crystal pink cover and the company's GreenCore, an environmentally-friendly core. The ball was designed for swing speeds under 100 miles per hour and for women with handicaps of 10 and higher. It will retail for $29.95 a dozen.

Its line of golf balls -- Earth, Wind and Fire -- is made from recyclable materials. Moreover, in keeping with its eco-friendly business model, it offers a $6 credit in exchance for a dozen old balls for recycling purposes.

The company also forbids disposable water bottles in its Tempe, Ariz., headquarters, sends out invoices only via email and not on paper, and has solar panels that power its building, which has a roof-top garden.
