ST. GEORGE — Local musicians are invited to attend a free recycle and restring event at The Music Store in St. George Friday at 3 p.m. The event is sponsored by D’Addario & Company, Inc., the world’s largest manufacturer of musical instrument accessories marketed under several product divisions.
Musicians can bring any old instrument strings for recycling and get their electric or acoustic guitars restrung with D’Addario NYXL or Nickel Bronze Acoustic strings. Old strings collected during the event will be recycled through “Playback,” D’Addario’s free, national recycling program.
Playback is the world’s first instrument string recycling program, launched through a partnership between D’Addario and international recycling company TerraCycle, a global leader in recycling typically non-recyclable waste, working with companies to implement recycling initiatives and finding solutions for materials otherwise destined for landfill.
The Playback program is a part of D’Addario’s Players Circle loyalty program and allows registered users to recycle their used strings in exchange for extra Players Circle points.
Musicians attending the recycle and restring events will receive a code at the event, redeemable for extra Players Circle points. Points can be used towards merchandise or donated to the D’Addario Foundation, the company’s nonprofit organization supporting music education in underserved communities.
D’Addario has been consistently committed to the environment, working to reduce their company’s packaging waste and use the most environmentally responsible packaging available on the market. Their partnership with TerraCycle allows them to further reinforce their role as an environmental leader in the music industry.
The Music Store is Utah’s premiere full-service music shop. The Music Store is passionate about providing a world class selection of instruments, accessories and information to fellow music lovers. Vocal and musical instrument lessons are offered by trained and certified professionals.
