Recycle Musically This Earth Day

Posted By on Fri, Apr 1, 2016 at 3:30 PM

Environmentalists who play the guitar—listen up. The Instrumental Music Center is celebrating Earth Day and National Guitar Month in a way that will help you rock your world.

The center will host a guitar recycling and restringing event on Thursday, April 7. All you have to do is bring in old guitar strings, and event sponsor D'Addario's people will restring your instrument—electric or acoustic—with NYXL or nickel bronze acoustic strings for free.

The event is part of Playback, D'Addario's national program that helps guitarists recycle their strings at no charge. The initiative, which D'Addario's press release writes is the first of its kind, is the result of partnership between the company and international recycling giant TerraCycle—D'Addario does the gathering, TerraCyle does the physical recycling.

D'Addario is also trying to give back to the music community through the restring/recycle event. Members of D'Addario's Player's Circle—the company's loyalty program—will receive a code at the International Music Center for loyalty points which they can donate to the D'Addario Foundation, a nonprofit that supports music education in lower socio-economic communities in the United States. 

The event starts at 1 and runs until 7:30 p.m. Get more information here.
